Maxin10sity's contribution to the Luminale is an abstract audio-visual show that, in harmony with music, fascinates the audience on the Römerberg. The concept strives to visualize the intense connection between two cities celebrating their 30-year partnership – Frankfurt and Budapest. At the same time, the work seeks a new interpretation of romanticism in the digital age, asks what are the dreams of a city at the interface of the romantic and the digital, and why it is great to live in a city.


Luminale on the Römer: A Dream of a City

3 times 30 years of partnership connect the city of Frankfurt with its twin cities of Budapest, Prague and Leipzig. Already in 1990, one year after the fall of the Iron Curtain, friendship treaties were concluded with three anniversaries. Where does one receive the guests of honor to celebrate such a memorable event? Where else but in the ”Gud Stubb" , the good old living room, in the heart of the city, on the Römerberg. For the Luminale 2020, the stage is set for the artists from Budapest, Prague and Leipzig! "A dream of a city" is the broad leitmotif for artistic works by the city’s partners. Under this motto, design studios from Budapest, Prague and Leipzig will each present an audiovisual work –  a video mapping that embraces the Römer and the Old St. Nicholas Church. A look at what we have in common, at what unites us, at common visions and challenges.

International city partnership has a long tradition and was born after the Second World War from the desire for lasting reconciliation.  This is where people meet, exchange experiences and ideas and get personally involved in collaborative projects.

The city of Frankfurt am Main is connected with 17 partner cities on four continents. One of the key objectives thereby is to promote meetings and exchange of experience. In 2020, the partnerships with Lyon, Milan and Tel Aviv will also be celebrating round jubilees. The oldest friendship treaty was concluded with Lyon in 1960, and 2020 marks its 60th anniversary.

Maxin10sity was born of a passion for projection mapping and the search for new forms of design. For many years, the creative professionals from Budapest have been developing video mappings and successfully meeting the demands of a discerning audience. In addition to "traditional" façade mappings, they develop car mapping shows and projections with random objects – there are no limits to the ideas and possibilities.
