6th edition ( 2017 ) of the european month of photography luxembourg


We are already preparing 2017, the sixth edition of the festival.

Although a majority of exhibitions will be located again in the capital – mainly at the Mudam ( Museum of contemporary art) , the Casino Forum of Contemporary Art, the MnHA ( National Museum of Art an d History ) and the Cercle-Cité ( exhibition space of the City- two other cities play an important role when it comes photography in Luxembourg: Dudelange and Clervaux. There is also a newcomer : art space H2O of the city of Differdange / Obercorn.

The birth of the CNA (National Audiovisual Centre) in the late 80s – and implanted in Dudelange – was the political founding act giving official existence to photography in the Grand Duchy by drawing attention to a mythical figure in the history of photography: Edward Steichen born in Luxembourg .
It was around this mythical character of photography that Luxembourg was able to develop a range of initiatives in an area that has long been without recognition. With the decision of the Ministry of Culture to install this newly created center in Dudelange, about 20 minutes from the capital – the city of Dudelange became, through the CNA, but particularly also through its Centre d’Art Nei aLiich and its director Danièle Igniti, a showcase of photography in Luxembourg.

New corporate identity adopted

New corporate identity adopted


An important aspect on the agenda of the most recent meeting with our partners of the EMOP group (European Month of Photography) last week in Bratislava in the House of Photography in Central Europe, was a strategic one. We were seeking for a better harmonization of  the communication strategies of eight cities hosting a festival on photography. The proposals made by the design office C / O Berlin – working for our Berlin partner Kulturprojekte Berlin – have been adopted by all cities. Thus, in September Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Vienna will adopt a similar design for posters, catalogues and website. The new logo – which will be the same for all the festivals – will be placed next to the logo specific to each festival. Indeed, despite the need to show more coherence,  it was not our intend to eliminate the characteristics of each city; some are organizing a festival for 25 years and more. Our aim was primarily to provide a better readability of photo festivals in Europe and to see the connections that are made between the various cities that work together now for 10 years.
