The exhibition, the collection, the Prize

Since the first European Month of Photography in Luxembourg, Arendt & Medernach, working in close partnership with Café Crème, has been closely involved by offering its picture rails to selected photographers depending on the general theme of the event. As such, it was entirely logical for the law firm to continue supporting the event by adding a further activity in 2013, the Prize ‘European Month of Photography Arendt Award’. The prize, presented for the first time in Luxembourg, has been attributed to the Spanish artist Dionisio Gonzalez, one of the 26 artists of the exhibition concept entitled 'distURBANces', a challenge to the conventional notion of 'reality' in a world of constant change.
The jury selected Dionisio Gonzalez for his commitment and innovative approach, as well as the socio-political dimension of his work.

Over the past ten years, Arendt & Medernach has succeeded, via its various long-term and interconnected activities related to contemporary photography, in creating an aesthetic and artistic environment which confronts the business world on a number of shared questions, contributing to open-mindedness, diversity of thought and emotions sharing.
