However, the more important goal of 'Luminale' is to continue to contribute to urban
development through dialogue with artists, creative thinking, city planners, scientists and
Each project of “Luminale”, which focuses on urban vision in the fields of light,
architecture, technology, ecology, urban social interaction, or history and culture, is based on practical experiences with interdisciplinary dialogue. In this process, 'Luminale' is the

◆ 'The concept of ‘Luminale’
world's leading trade fair for lighting and building technology.
The “Bienale” is one of the largest lighting events in the world today. Today's “Luminale”
has grown into an important cultural event in the Rhine-Main region, with approximately
250,000 visitors and 150 projects each time it is held to light up Frankfurt and nearby
Since 2018, 'Luminale' is a biennale for lighting arts and urban design, and has pursued
the goal of not only making a sustainable contribution to urban design, but also creating popular and high-quality programs in terms of art and content.
Therefore, in 'Luminal', the city is not only a stage, but also a major component of the
festival itself. In the interface between urban light, architecture, technology, ecological and social interactions, projects that compete with future urban visions turn into practical
experiences with interdisciplinary dialogue on related issues.
'Luminale' is presenting programs in five areas. CURATED presents a selected location for
thematic lighting arts, TALK presents lectures and conversations with prominent experts,
and STUDY presents projects from universities and other educational institutions. This
includes a project that freely and experimentally handles light and cities outside the
selected areas of the community with a unique spirit.
Finally, the BETTER CITY section focuses on all the projects that will be permanently
preserved in the city and contribute to the sustainability of the 'Luminale'.
'Light Walk', which serves as the heart of 'Luminale' in urban space, combines interesting
places with city walking tours and public art galleries.

changing cities such as Frankfurt and Offenbach, squares disappear, fall into oblivion, or
become objects-free. These changes, monuments, and landmarks become important
venues and themes of light art projects in the 'Light Walk'.

Why did you choose this theme? This is because “Digital Romanticism” is “the medium
and material of art and urban design”. Especially in 'Digital Romanticism', light seems to
be a suitable medium to solve the problem of digital and romantic interaction.
Next year, the Deutsche Romantik-Museum in Frankfurt Main will be opened. In this
regard, “Luminale” is seeking the connection between the romantic era and the present

kept in mind to prevent the flood of endless content? Does lighting art quickly disappear as a stage event or satisfy your desire for something that is true, beautiful and good?
‘Luminale’ asks these various questions to us.
Fortunately, the contents of the “Luminale” that I haven't seen in Frankfurt this spring can be seen on the internet. This is because some of the projects that were scheduled to be
shown in the 'Luminal' this year on the Internet have been released by the 'Luminale E.V.', which is in charge of promoting Messe Frankfurt and the 'Luminale'.
