EPISODE 002 - Remix Art - Les porteurs de projets ont la parole.
Kultur-Projektmanagerin Esch2022 / chargée de mission chez Esch2022
One of the big themes is “Remix Art”. “Remix Art” means that all the branches within art come together, whether that be fine arts, photography, painting, literature, film.
A big aspect within “Remix Art” is digital art. Digital art is new and does not necessarily exist as such in Luxembourg. There are few artists working within this topic or subject area and as Esch2022, we want to highlight that a bit and introduce it to the public.
We have a specific location at Belval, which is our “Möllerei”, where we will showcase different exhibitions on the topic of digital art in the space of 10 months.
It is important for us at Esch2022 to bring down barriers and to be able to give people access to digital art, as these are important and difficult subjects, and to create a platform for people to actively participate, discuss, ask questions and to make this route accessible for everyone.
Esch2022 is the European Capital of Culture 2022, featuring the town of Esch-Alzette, the ten other Luxembourg municipalities of the Pro-Sud union and the eight French municipalities of the CCPHVA region. The slogan of Esch2022 is “Remix Culture”. Production work on the implementation of all of the themes is being carried out in close cooperation with the municipalities, the ministries and other partners. Esch2022 is managed by the association ‘Capitale européenne de la culture 2022 asbl’. In 2022, two other cities in Europe will hold this title: Kaunas in Lithuania and Novi Sad in Serbia.
