In the presence of the artists Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron



Within the framework of the exhibition

Freigeister. Fragments of an art scene in Luxembourg


15€ | 5€ for students (breakfast included)


The museum welcomes you in compliance with CovidCheck

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.

Vivre ensemble
12.02.2022 | 10h00–12h00 | FR
With Denis Scuto (deputy director of the C²DH, Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History) and Magali de Nachtergael (curator and art critic)
In the presence of and on invitation by the artists Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron
Roland Barthes' course at the Collège de France from 1976–77 introduced, for the first time as a central subject of literary and critical reflection, the term of "living together". It has since become a way of considering life in society in a broad sense. From utopian micro-communities, Barthes develops the idea of the idiorhythmy, a way of getting along with the rest of a group, while keeping one's singularity.
