Marinella Senatores luminarie

➤ The centrepiece of the exhibition is the so-called "luminaria" on the facade of the Kurhaus, Senatore's largest artwork exhibited in Germany to date. The Luminaria, which is illuminated by around 9,000 colourful LED bulbs, was produced especially for the Kurhaus façade, taking into account the conditions in the Kurgarten. 


➤  In the middle of the Kurhaus Colonnades, the artist also prepares a stage for Baden-Baden - in the truest sense of the word. Under the motto "Dance first - think later", a creative space for everyone is being created as part of "art meets city". The stage, designed with colourful LED light bulbs, arches and geometric shapes, will become an "open stage": you can sing, dance or play theatre - there are no limits to your creativity. Be spontaneous and take the stage for yourself. ♥

➤ In addition, a podium will be set up in the middle of the greenery of the Kurgarten: another luminaria, which invites visitors to become part of the art under the motto "Bodies in Alliance" - more than just a perfect photo spot.

Share your photos and videos with the hashtag #kunstfindetstadtbadenbaden.


The luminaria are particularly impressive in the dark. They are illuminated daily from sunset to midnight, on Fridays & Saturdays until 01:00.

Of course, you can admire and use the artworks at any time.

All about
art meets city

At art meets city you can discover what art can be in an open air setting. Experience the Kurgarten in a completely different way. Exchange ideas!
Art brings people together; to think and to experience.

In addition to the renowned addresses on Lichtentaler Allee, such as the Museum Frieder Burda and the Staatliche Kunsthalle, Studio 45 cbm and Museum LA8, a new place for art has been announced: the Kurgarten, directly in front of the Kurhaus. In future, art in public space will find a stage here. An invitation to the citizens and guests of the city to experience this well-known and popular place in a new way. Free of charge.

Each year, an artist will have the opportunity to present a work of art open-air under the motto "kunst findet stadt" (art meets city). An advisory board of renowned art experts will make the selection. The event is organised by Baden-Baden Events GmbH.

In 2021, art meets city celebrated its debut with artworks by the world-renowned artist Jeppe Hein. Click here for the review.
