TERRITOIRE ECOC 2022

A Europe that
builds on the remix
of cultures.

The southern part of Luxembourg and the directly adjoining area on the other side of the French border have a story to tell. A deeply European story, a story we want to bring as far as Europe’s borders – and beyond. For it is here, in Europe’s old industrial heartland – where important foundations were once laid for European integration – that today over 120 different nationalities live together in close proximity. Here we get a sense of how Europe might look in the future. A Europe that sets great store by its melting pot of cultures, a Europe that can deal creatively and courageously with the transition from being an industrial society to becoming a knowledge-based society. A Europe that is also well aware of the challenges of becoming an increasingly heterogeneous society and a Europe that takes a stance against nationalism and all forms of xenophobia. As a Capital of Culture, we want to draw on the potential our region offers and we are convinced that this will have a long-lasting impact both on the development of our region and further afield.

Art.

Creating a new concept of what art is, also in the sense of its function, entered a new era at the start of the 20th century at the latest, and was signifcantly shaped by the technical reproducibility of art. In the last thirty years, the “digital...
