Emoplux 2019

Emoplux 2019

Our association is actively preparing 2019, the seventh edition of the festival schedules the opening days during the second week of May ( 15-18th ). 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.
Even if the majority of the exhibitions should be located again in the capital, including the Mudam, Casino Forum for Contemporary Art, MnHA and Cercle-Cité, the cities of Dudelange and Clervaux are expected partners again. Unfortunately Mrs Daniele Igniti of the City of Dudelange will retire, and there are no signs that both city galleries will provide the same high quality programming in the future. We will see.

We hope to have again on board on a larger scale the National Library, the National Archives and the Carré-Rotondes exhibition space or the Architects’ Foundation (LUCA).
On the side of private galleries, the situation looks grim with the closure of Wildproject and Sofronis. But  the regulars like Clairefontaine and Nosbaum & Reding will be on board again next to Valerius gallery, a new.-comer.
Let’s also mention our faithful sponsor the law firm Arendt & amp; Medernach which has proved over the years to be a reliable supporter. The firm provides substantial assistance not to mention the Arendt & amp; Medernach 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 is upcoming. A book project on the body in contemporary photography is about to be published in spring.

New task for emop partner in Vienna

New task for emop partner in Vienna

The MUSA, the exhibition space of the art collection of the city of Vienna near the City Hall and EMOP’s main partner in Vienna, recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
But from January 2018 on, the Musa will be affiliated to the Wien Museum and Berthold Ecker, head of the city department responsible for art purchases and their presentation, will also be curator of this Museum.
The MUSA collections will be transferred to the Vienna Museum.
Berthold Ecker considers that this change is to be considered as a structural upgrade. The main task of a Culture department is to promote art, to act as a museum is not his main goal. Therefore it makes sense to transfer the collection to the Wien Museum. Extract source Kurier.at 29/08/2017
