Biennial for light art and urban desing

& Offenbach

Luminale 2022

Luminale 2022 is suspended. We regret this very much and look ahead for a new edition in 2024.


Due to the SARS-COV-2 virus, Luminale 2020 unfortunately had to be canceled shortly before the opening. The projects were already set up - with a lot of effort, love and dedication from all sides. Luckily, many of the participating artists had already documented their works during mounting or final rehearsals. #luminaledigital collects these pictures and videos and thus offers a virtual view behind the scenes – here on our start page and more in detail on the individual project pages.

As a biennial for light art and urban design, the Luminale pursue the goal of creating a popular and high-quality program in terms of both artistic and contextual content. A further key objective is to make a sustainable contribution to urban development – in dialogue with artists, creative minds, urban planners, scientists and the city’s residents. Projects revolving around urban visions in the fields of light, architecture, technology, ecology, social interaction in the city, or with its history and culture, make this into a tangible experience – accompanied by interdisciplinary dialogue. In this process, the Luminale sees itself as a source of ideas and impulses, as well as coordinator, communicator and test laboratory.
