Unmissable February & March Happenings



Event tips from Luxembourg's cultural landscape for February and March: from concerts at the Kufa and films at the Rotondes to guided tours of the Lëtzebuerg City Museum and Villa Vauban.


Anyone who feels attracted by musical styles such as anatolian funk, tajine synthwave or oriental synthpunk needs to go to the Kufa at the beginning of February. The Istanbul trio Lalalar, the Algerian-Lebanese DJ duo Kabylie Minogue from France and the Algerian musician Tune Zitoune, also from France, will be performing there. As different as the acts sound, they all draw on samples from Turkish and Arabic folk music, among other things, in their music. The result is wonderful sounds that invite you to dance.


Admission: 22,00 €

Friday, February 02, 2024, Kufa, 8:00 p.m.

The new year also marks the start of a new season at the Université Populaire du Cinéma. The main theme of the 14th season is "Beyond good and evil". In a total of seven lectures, cinema will be put to the moral test at the Cinémathèque. In February, George Cukor's film Gaslight (1944) by Hugo Clémont will be put under the microscope. In this psychological thriller, a man tries to drive his young wife mad with mind games. The term 'gaslighting', which describes a form of psychological violence, goes back to this film.


Admission: 08,50 €

Monday, February 26, 2024, Cinémathèque, 7:00 p.m.


SPECIAL MENTION

On the 8th of March every year, the JIF collective will organize a feminist march. Stay tuned on the @jif_luxembourg instagram page to see them unveil the details of this unmissable demonstration.




Lesbian love stories are unfortunately still a rarity in cinema today. The queer-feminist film club Queer loox is counteracting this blind spot by showing the groundbreaking low-budget film Go Fish (1994) at the Rotondes. In her debut film, director Rose Troche portrays the everyday lives of several lesbian women in Chicago who openly discuss various topics ranging from female sexuality to ideas of femininity.

In the guided tour series "Typical (fe)male? - Gender roles and identities in art", paintings from the Villa Vauban collection are examined with regard to themes such as gender roles and identities. It becomes clear how differently artists have dealt with these themes and how rapidly ideas about gender have changed since the 17th century. At the end of March, the tour will focus on the depiction of couples through the ages.

Friday, March 22, 2024, Villa Vauban, 7:00 p.m.


The series "Wat ass Architektur? - Cinémarchitecture" at the Rotondes uses films to raise questions on various architectural topics. In March, the comedy Kitchen Stories (2003) will be shown: shocked by the fact that a housewife travels over 7000 kilometers a year just to do the housework, the Swedish Institute for Household Research commissions a group of scientific observers to investigate the kitchen routines of single men. In the process, some strange friendships develop between the test subjects and the observers.
