Focus

A real springboard, the new Focus section reveals and promotes, each year, the strength and vitality of contemporary creation in a selected city. For each Focus, a dozen artistic spaces and young galleries from this contemporary scene will be selected and then highlighted in the Take Off section. In 2020, Luxembourg Art Week will thus highlight the Belgian capital, Brussels.

    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal.
