Our association is about to complete the planning for the seventh edition of the festival. The opening days are scheduled of May 15 to 18th. Key topic to be considered at this point is the representation of the body in contemporary photography featuring mainly female artists / photographers who question the traditional models.
A majority of exhibitions is located again in the capital, including MnHA and Cercle-Cité, Villa Vauban, Casino Forum for Contemporary Art, Abbaye de Neumunster, the Mudam and Luca.
We are happy to see the French Institute return with an exhibition at Abbaye de Neumunster and the Camoes Institute as the Portuguese representative renew it participation.
The cities of Dudelange and Clervaux are the expected partners again. Unfortunately Mrs Daniele Igniti of the City of Dudelange has retired this year, and no information about both city galleries have been provided
As to the private galleries, the regulars like Clairefontaine and Nosbaum & Reding will be on board again next to MobArt gallery, a new-comer.
Let’s of course mention our faithful sponsor the law firm Arendt which has proved over the years to be the reliable supporter. The firm provides substantial assistance not to mention the Arendt award for the European Month of Photography.
As far as our international partners are concerned, things seem to run smooth and festivals were held in Berlin, Budapest, Bratislava and Athens in autumn last year, Vienna opened on March 20th. A book on the body in contemporary photography was published for this occasion.
