Luminale (18th – 23rd of March 2018)
In March, Frankfurt’s houses, streets and squares will be glowing again! Since 2002, every two years, the biennial for light and media art as well as for city design takes place in Frankfurt and Offenbach. The versatile programme invites participants to rediscover the city and therefore the Luminale counts to the most popular events of the Rhine-Main area with more than 200.000 visitors so far. The festival is divided into five different projects:
Luminale ART: Via video mapping, photography, installations and multimedia, extraordinary artists engage with the field of tension between light and city. The prefigurations of the on-topic light art are the architecture, history, reception and usage of specific places as well as relevant questions concerning the city Frankfurt. Moreover, the Light Walk invites to a discovery tour in the city-centre, passing the artistic works and thereby connecting the landmarks, memorials and hidden places of Frankfurt with each other.
Luminale SOLUTIONS: This format brings renowned experts from the disciplines politics, culture, science and society together in a dialogue about the future and the city development in the Rhine-Main area as well as in global regard in theory and practice. The most important topics hereby are the individual, architecture, safety, environment and light in the city. The light-flooded Spanish culture centre, Instituto Cervantes, provides the perfect location for this.
Luminale STUDY: Here, the projects of universities and other education institutes are presented in order to also grant young talents room for their own perspectives and visions.
Luminale COMMUNITY: Likewise, the urban community gets the possibility to address topics like design, development and quality of living of the public space with self initiated contributions, exhibitions, events and experiments.
Luminale BETTER CITY: This area involves projects which survive permanently and thereby make a visible contribution to the sustainability of the whole Luminale Festival.
