Emoplux 2019

Emoplux 2019

 Our association has successfully closed the seventh edition of the photo festival this year featuring about twenty venues. The festival’s topic – Bodyfiction (s) – was meant to be a reflection on the representation of the body in contemporary photography by artists who question traditional models.

A majority of the exhibitions took place in the capital, notably at the MnHA, Villa Vauban, Cercle-Cité, Mudam, Casino Forum for Contemporary Art, Neumunster Abbey and Luca Center. We welcomed an old partner again – the French Institute – which occupied a space at the Neumunster Abbey and the participation of the Camoes Institute for the Portuguese Embassy. The cities of Dudelange (CNA) and Clervaux (Cité de l’Image) were among the usual participants.
Participating private galleries were regulars like the Clairefontaine Gallery and the Nosbaum & amp; Reding Gallery next to a newcomer, the MobArt Gallery.
We would like to thank our loyal partner, the Arendt Law Firm, which over the years has proved to be an essential support. The law firm provides important support for our initiatives, in particular by creating the Arendt Award for the European Month of Photography.
On the partners’ side, we thank the City of Berlin and the photo institutions of Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna who supported the project of a book on the body in photography, published at the opening of the festival in Vienna in March this year.
