Unmissable December & January Happenings

Event tips from Luxembourg's cultural landscape for December and January: from workshops at Mudam and concerts at the Kufa to short films at the Rotondes and Cercle Cité

Perpendiculaire au soleil (2022) by Valentine Cuny-Le Callet shows how a friendship develops from an exchange of letters between a French author and illustrator and a Florida prisoner sentenced to death. Using letters, drawings and prints, she not only provides deep insights into this extraordinary friendship, but also into the merciless prison system. The graphic novel will be presented by Virginie Dellenbach as part of the monthly book club at the Casino.

The "Wishful Printing" workshop at Mudam is highly recommended for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in the variety of printing techniques.

At the end of the short film series "Screenings on Inclusion", Cercle Cité is showing Fashions (2019) by Israeli artist Keren Cytter.

The Mnemozine workshop at Mudam offers a new look at a medium of the past: tape. Using tape recorders, sounds from the environment are first captured and then processed into unique magnetic sound compositions. The pioneering work of the British musician Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001), who is regarded as a pioneer of electronic music and revolutionised the BBC with her pioneering sounds, is also presented.

Participation fee: €10 (students: €5, culture pass: €1.50)
