EXHIBITIONS:

From March 4: All ladies. Cows in Europe, Chateau de Clervaux

Whether it is the steak on your plate, the leather in your shoes, the holy symbol of your faith, the milk in your cappuccino, the hide on your living room floor, or your imagination of fresh pastures bathing in sunlight, everybody is connected to the cow in some way. In neither belittling nor humanising it, Ursula Böhmer has created dignified portraits of this fantastic animal. Find out more here.

From March 7: Memory Lab - Photography challenges History, Mudam

A number of artists take on a number of settings, ranging from Hitler's view of Bavarian alps from his Berghof residence, to contemporary urban scenes. This takes the visitor through a challenging time travel, with the chance to subjectively interpret some of Europe's most cruel periods, reminding us that history tends to repeat itself. Check mudam.lu for opening hours.

Until March 29: Help! The Red Cross in Luxembourg and the world, Musée d'histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg

Running since April last year, the Red Cross exhibition soon comes to an end. Take the time to explore the substantial role the organisation, present in 189 nations, has played in both Luxembourg and the world. Right from the start, this exhibition raises questions about our wish to help those in need. Find out more here.
