„A day of relaxation, reflection and inspiration“
As amateurs of the arts have long been aware, the Luxembourg financial centre has more to offer than financial products and services. Adding to the reputation of Luxembourg as a cultural jewel, the exceptional „Private Art Kirchberg“ event is taking place once again, after a one year break.
Often hidden behind clinically severe walls, the financial centre shelters real treasures of modern art. But you won’t see them unless you are a client or an employee. Art should be a public cultural asset; the organisers have taken this to heart and will put it into action on 26 September, 2010, by opening their doors to the public.
Since its launch in 2006 by Clearstream Deutsche Börse, the participating banks have shown their collections three times to art lovers. The events of 2009 caused a hiaitus in the financial world and to this event as well. However, the feather dusters are swinging again this year.
Between 1pm and 7 pm, eleven institutions will open their gates to let the public share their collections. Amongst them are not only banks, but also law firms, a marketing agency and Le Fonds d’urbanisation et d’aménagement du plateau de Kirchberg.
However it is not only the collections that deserve a visit. The work of well-known architects such as Richard Meier (Unicredit Luxembourg building) and Gottfried Böhm (Deutsche Bank Luxembourg building) are to be seen in Kirchberg. Guided tours in French, English, German, Luxembourgish and Italian bring artworks and buildings close to the visitors. A free bus transfer service and free use of the Vel’oH city bicycles will enable you to visit several sites in one day. The entry to the collections is free of charge.
Luxembourg for Finance is proud to support this unique event as a sponsor and invites you to spend Sunday in Kirchberg. EK
