There are no special screenings or cinema events listed this weekend. While the Cinémathèque in Place du Théâtre is closed until 2014, Luxembourg's other cinemas are open. Visit utopolis.lu and caramba.lu for their programmes.

EXHIBITIONS

Until January 12: Contemporary Chinese Art 1, Abbaye de Neumünster

Discover contemporary artworks by Chinese artists Zhuo Yingchao and Shi Liru. Reflecting on their country's past while also finding a place in its present, the artists work in a variety of different media, such as illustrations, painting and ceramics. The exhibition will be followed later in January by Contemporary Chinese Art 2. Find out more on ccrn.lu

Until January 12: Tombeau pour les Rares, Abbaye de Neumünster

Also at Abbaye de Neumünster, artist Nicolas Rozier has created a series of unusual portraits. Trying to capture the interior life of several poets and artists, the paintings by Rozier are abstract, fragile and bold at the same time. Read more on ccrn.lu

Until April 20: Keep Your Feelings in Your Memory, Musée National de la Résistance Esch/Alzette

With the number of witnesses of WW2 getting ever smaller, the national resistance museum is hosting a special contemporary art exhibition to bring the past and the present into dialogue with one another and keep the memory of the Second World War alive. Find out more on esch.lu
