"Inspire people for sustainable construction"

The Luminale sees itself as a platform to bring together and sensitize local stakeholders to the challenges of urban design. One project in the BETTER CITY section is The GREEN SHOWHOUSE FERDI by PIER F – Port of the Future Frankfurt, founded by Susanne Petry, who explains what lies behind the initiative.



First projects are online!

So far we have only worked behind the scenes, but finally we are ready to present light art works for the Luminale 2020.



Call for Volunteers

Please spread the word: We are still looking for volunteers for the Luminale 2020, the Biennale for Light Art and Urban Design.



Music, Sound & Light: REFRAKTO in St. Catherine’s Church

The call for the Luminale 2020 is closed and the first projects to have definitely made it into the program have emerged. One of which is the audiovisual performance REFRAKTO in Frankfurt's St. Catherine’s Church, to be accompanied by several concerts.



"We want to update the idea of recycling."

Material Warehouse offers a major opportunity to make the exhibition business more sustainable. With "Material für Alle" (Material for All), gallerist and cultural creator Felix Grosse-Lohmann has successfully kick-started his dream of just such a contact point in Frankfurt. MFA is now supporting the Luminale and its artists as a partner.



Practical Support for our Luminale Artists

Event technology, material storage and other equipment: several companies and initiatives are at our side as valued partners, and happy to offer support to our Luminale artists.



Achieving a lot with slender means : redesign of the Luminale

From now on, a redesigned Luminale is taking the stage. This means that the Biennale for Light Art and Urban Design is also more visually powerful as an independent cultural festival in and beyond Frankfurt am Main.



Innovative project in the festival center: high-rise dwellers wanted

For an innovative project, the Luminale is still looking for participants who would like to talk about their lives in a high-rise building. Embedded in lectures and panel discussions, a format entitled „Luxury, Lifestyle, Love - Living in the Towers“ is being developed, whereby several protagonists will briefly and entertainingly offer insights into their lives in the skyscrapers.



Luminale is getting a new project office

Around four months before the start of the Luminale 2020, the organizational team will be moving into a new project office in Frankfurt’s city center. Our heartfelt thanks to the City of Frankfurt for arranging the office space in Weißfrauenstraße – and to AES Veranstaltungstechnik, who have provided us with tables and chairs!
