The Freigeister exhibition is the result of a collaborative process which, in the preparatory phase, involved a series of discussion days between artists, curators and outside experts. Their remit was to reflect on the most significant issues affecting Luxembourg today, such as borders, migration, languages, living together and the development of our country.

Mudam would like to continue this discussion platform by involving the public. From 8 January to 26 February 2022, each Saturday morning you are invited to join experts from a variety of fields – artists, researchers, writers, architects, sociologists and representatives of institutions and associations – to discuss some of the key themes reflecting the complex reality of Luxembourg today, how the country is changing and its future prospects.

Each Discussion Platform – Freigeister begins with a presentation of their work by the artist in person, followed by a presentation on the chosen topic by a guest expert. These presentations are followed by a moment of convivial discussion around a breakfast with the public and the speakers of the "Freigeister Alphabet" project.

Ouverture by Marianne Donven (manager of Chiche! restaurants, co-initiator of Open Home)
On inviation and in the presence of the artist Nina Tomàs

To be open to oneself and to others: a story of discovering human values through travels, encounters, the recognition of misery, resilience and dignity for the most deprived, the uprooted; the path towards an open ear, towards empathy, commitment alongside migrants and refugees. Why? And how far?
