Since 2012 the Luxembourg based law firm Arendt & Medernach with offices in Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Moscow and New York has been supporting our association. It considerably contributed to develop a taste for photography and contemporary art in general.
The law firm Arendt & Medernach awards every every second year one visual artist who is part of the common exhibitions that the network is curating throughout Europe.
For Arendt & Medernach, contemporary art is a passion. Since a number of years, the firm is engaged in the art of photography by exhibiting artists from all over the world in its premises situated in Kirchberg, Luxembourg. Works of well-known artists such as David La Chapelle, Beat Streuli, Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Candida Höfer, Günther Förg and Valérie Belin were exhibited along with works of young talents. Progressively, Arendt & Medernach built up its own art collection, representative of the main currents in contemporary photography.
True to its passion, Arendt & Medernach wishes to encourage open-mindedness, diversity and the sharing of emotions. It is thus a great pleasure for Arendt & Medernach to be affiliated with the “European Month of Photography”.
