Luminale: Biennale for Light Art and Urban Design to pause in 2022
Since 2002, the Luminale festival in the German cities of Frankfurt and Offenbach has accompanied Light + Building, the world's leading trade fair for light and building services technology, which takes place every two years in Frankfurt am Main. Initiated by Messe Frankfurt as a "bridge from the exhibition grounds to the city", the public event has since developed into an internationally recognised light and culture festival with over 250,000 visitors. Messe Frankfurt as the organiser holds all trademarks and funds the project office, the promotion of Luminale and a beacon project. Due to Messe Frankfurt's economic situation, this is not viable for 2022. Therefore, the will not take place in 2022.
