Luminale, the biennial of lighting culture

From April 11 to 16, the Luminale, the biennial of lighting culture, will for the fifth time attract trade fair visitors and locals to this city on the River Main, to experience the evening light spectacles in buildings, on facades, squares, monuments and in parks. Over 150 light installations place familiar places in unusual contexts or revive little noticed areas of the city. This year the topical focuses of the festival are energy-efficiency and LED luminaires in combination with sound and movement. In selecting the projects there was an emphasis on the experimental concept of the artworks. The chosen projects are new installations that have not been tested much, and not the ones that can be seen at all the light shows: “It is possible something will go wrong. Some of the installations might not work,” concedes Bien. “But that is part and parcel of an experimental laboratory.”
