Esch a Flamen
Héichkultur amplaz Héichuewen
From steel industry to technology location: 50 years of structural change staged as a short-term and dramatic upheaval. With happenings, newspapers, posters, short films and plays, the story of the reinvention of Luxembourg's south can be experienced directly in public space.
The structural transformation of Luxembourg's south is staged as a project commissioned from a team of ambitious urban planners. Within a few months, Esch-Alzette is to be completely modernised. The closure of all (even fictitious) industry is announced, the old buildings are turned into an open-air museum and the redesign begins. Naturally, local resistance arises - a battle between old and new begins in three chapters.
