Esch-sur-Alzette, the cross-border area in the south of Luxembourg, is in transformation: a former steel industry region will become a hub for future-oriented knowledge and innovative creativity. Esch2022 — European Capital of Culture invited Ars Electronica Export to be part of this transformation through curating an exhibition in the Möllerei. The exhibition will invite visitors to explore art as a tool for us humans to understand and envision the future. The show will be on view from September 3rd to November 27th 2022.
Between February and November 2022 in the newly refurbished Möllerei building, will make space for three exhibitions to showcase the work of over 70 contemporary artists and address the important issues of our time. Further collaborators beside Ars Electronica are ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe and HEK (House of Electronic Arts).
In preparation to the one-year program of Esch 2022 we were able to showcase projects at the Ars Electronica Festival in 2020 as well as 2022.
