Frankfurt Luminale 2020 goes digital this time

Frankfurt Luminale, a huge art exhibition and music festival, which is held biennially, is all set to go digital this year, thanks to the COVID-19 lockdown. Organised once every two years since 2002, this cultural festival of light art is one of the major tourist attractions and largest cultural events of Frankfurt and Offenbach.

The festival draws around 250,000 visitors, but this year, it’s going to be different. The Luminale, which was supposed to be held in 2020, has gone digital given the pandemic situation. Most of the artists participating in the festival already gave up their projects because of the virus. However, the visuals that were documented for the festival’s final rehearsals along with behind the scenes tour are now available digitally for the world to see and enjoy.

The theme of 2020 is also quite interesting and is called Digital Romantic, which discovers the connection between the Romantic era of art and the digital revolution. Luminale is a festival where light is used as medium and the muse too.

The official website of the Luminale explains the show like this,

“As a biennial for light art and urban design, the Luminale’s themes of light, city and future pursue the goal of creating a popular and high-quality program in terms of both artistic and contextual content.”

On their website, they have further explained the process and exhibition like following:

“The Luminale has been held in Frankfurt and Offenbach at two-yearly intervals since 2002. Originally established by Messe Frankfurt as an accompanying event to Light + Building, the world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building technology, the Biennial is now one of the largest cultural events in the City of Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region with around 250,000 visitors and 150 projects.”

Those who wish to experience this unique festival of light can do so by getting on the official Luminale website, where the organisers have shared the various projects virtually.
