They are organised by Esch2022 in collaboration with three leading media arts institutions: ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, HEK (House of Electronic Arts) and Ars Electronica and presented in the Möllerei in Esch-Belval, a listed building formerly used for storing raw materials used in the process of steelmaking.

In 2022, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg’s second largest city, is European Capital of Culture together with eighteen Luxembourg and French municipalities. Situated in Luxembourg’s former steel-mining south and crossing the border into France, Esch2022 aims at promoting the cultural and artistic diversity of the region. Following the general motto REMIX Culture, the program comprises a vast array of events from all artistic disciplines with a specific thematic focus on the transition of the region from the industrial past to a contemporary society of knowledge. Media arts and immersive exhibitions developed in collaboration with renowned international institutions are therefore cornerstones of the visual arts program unfolding in a stunning post-industrial site: Esch-Belval.
