  • 3D tours: the museum at your fingertips Press Release 09/03/20


    In times of confinement, treat yourself to an immersive 3D visit allowing you to venture through the museum, explore the  thematic routes  but above all to visit our temporary exhibitions (on  17th century Spanish baroque art  , on the centenary of  universal suffrage  and the photographic universe  Carla van Puttelaar  ).

    Scanned using cutting-edge technologies, the museum is thus accessible through an exciting digital experience. Aware of the complexity of its building and anxious to illustrate the extent of its rooms as well as the diversity of its temporary exhibitions as well as the richness of its collections, the National Museum of History and Art offers on its website a "3D Visits" tab allowing a detailed exploration of the interior of its building and especially of the different routes:  Archeology  ,  Decorative and popular arts  ,  Medal cabinet  , Fine Arts (  Ancient  Art  /  Modern and Contemporary  Art  /  Art in Luxembourg  ).

    Unlike simple shots of the exhibition halls, the 3D model not only makes it possible to better understand the architecture of the building but also to give visitors an immersive experience encouraging them to discover the places. The 3D models of the MNHA are now easily searchable on smartphones and tablets and can also be explored in Virtual Reality using VR-goggles like the Google Cardboard or the Occulus Gear VR.

  • 2020 Batty Weber Prize Winner Press Release 08/03/20

    The jury, made up of Vesna Andonovic, Anne Diderich, Fabienne Gilbertz, Frank Hoffmann, Luc Marteling, Sébastian Thiltges, chaired by Claude D. Conter, motivated his choice in English as follows:

    "Pierre Joris' poetic and essayistic work is an expression of his tireless and versatile exploration of the transcendence of borders in an attempt to achieve a cosmopolitan vision. ' Routes, not roots' should therefore be understood as a programmatic title that emphasizes the claim of Joris' 'nomad poetics' of moving between languages ​​(English, French, German, Arabic, Luxembourgish), between literatures, and between cultures. In his poetry, he uses the seductive and experimental nature of words to weave a net of surprising juxtapositions of different literary and cultural texts (from the avantgarde, the beat generation, Rilke, Ezra Pound, TS Eliot over Maghrebi literature to pop culture), which enables the reader to explore the world from its edges, to stroll through the diaspora, and to feel at home there. Joris' poetry, which postulates and expects an openness of mind, an agility of thought, and the willingness to deconstruct language, is therefore a modern answer to all forms of ideological curtailment and myopia.
