Biennial for Light Art and Urban Design

& Offenbach


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.



Yasuhiro Chida: Surrounded by Diamond Dust

Ever more often, the name Yasuhiro Chida is mentioned in the same breath as the great light art luminaries of the age. For Luminale, he will be creating a work of art that requires absolute darkness.



A visit to the dancing Shedim

Soon there’ll be dancing on the glass façade of the Ignatz Bubis Community Center, but first the performers must appear before the camera: We accompanied Lukas Sünder and his "Shedim Ballet" during the shoot.
