Luminale 2014

Frankfurt am Main and environs

30 March – 4 April 2014



In a few weeks’ time, Frankfurt will be at the stage of being bathed in new light. For the seventh time, this city will be hosting the Luminale which showcases innovative lighting ideas in an urban living space. This biennale of light culture, which was founded in 2002 and has been a creative experimental platform for designers and artists ever since, is presenting around 100 light installations this year.


Locations for light spectacles around Frankfurt include Börsenplatz, Hauptwache, Römer, Palm Garden and the main railway station. The Luminale 2014 programme ranges from projected shadow plays on the Nextower, designed by the Atelier Sounds of Silence, to an illumination of a bridge near the EZB tower to experimental light projections on the Naxoshalle and the Willy Praml Theater. There will also be a light tube installation by the artist, Barbara Trautmann, in the new Kap Europa conference centre in the Frankfurt Messe and a three-dimensional illumination of the substation at Osthafen designed by Jochen Siegemund, who is an architect and town planner based in Cologne and also winner of the Mainova@Luminale 2014 competition. Luminale 2014 takes place every two years as part of the leading international fair, Light + Building.
