In 2022, Esch2022 will share the title of European Capital of Culture with Kaunas, the second largest city in Lithuania, and Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia. To promote this triangular relationship and highlight their common values, the three cities have launched a series of programmes and collaborations that will be presented, among others, as part of their respective opening ceremonies.

After twelve years of anticipation, the official title of European Capital of Culture is back in Lithuania. The country’s second-largest city Kaunas and the surrounding Kaunas district are ready to become one big European stage next year – the grand opening is scheduled for January 22, 2022.  

Starting 25thSeptember, the Luxembourgish artist Justine Blau presents her project “I am a part of a landscape” at Annexe22 in Esch’s “Brillplaz”. From 25 September to 20 November 2021, the project will be on display in Pavillon Annexe22. Thanks to the glazed front of the cube on the "Brillplaz", visitors have access to the artwork during the day and during the night.

From 16 september until 16 October 2021, an art competition will invite schoolchildren to participate in discovering or exploring Space. This special programme for children and young persons will play a key role in the activities that form part of the European Capital of Culture festivities.

After participating in the Ars Electronica Festival for the first time in 2020 Esch2022 is again contributing to the international event with a new project “From red earth to grey matter” is a video documenting the ongoing collaborative work of Esch2022 with leading institutions ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, HEK (House of Electronic Arts) and Ars Electronica in the planning and delivery of three ambitious exhibition projects and diverse programmes of events.
