Emoplux 2019

Emoplux 2019

The seventh edition of the festival is on its way. The opening days are behind us but some exhibitions will run till september. Key topic of this edition was the representation of the body in contemporary photography featuring mainly female artists / photographers who question the traditional models.
A majority of exhibitions is located in the capital, including MnHA and Cercle-Cité, Villa Vauban, Casino Forum for Contemporary Art, Abbaye de Neumunster, the Mudam and Luca.
We were happy to see the French Institute return with two exhibitions at Abbaye de Neumunster. Camoes Institute as the Portuguese representative renewed it participation.
The cities of Dudelange and Clervaux were the expected partners again. Unfortunately Mrs Daniele Igniti of the City of Dudelange has retired this year, and no information about both city galleries were provided

As to the private galleries, the regulars like Clairefontaine and Nosbaum & Reding were 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.
