Lëtzebuerg City Museum will host a new temporary exhibition, titled "Best of Posters", from 7 October 2022 until 24 January 2024.
This exhibition provides an insight into the museum's poster collection, comprising around 2,500 pieces from the fields of politics, administration, culture and advertising. At the same time, it illustrates the development of Luxembourgish and international graphic design during the 20th century.
Posters bear witness to social changes, prevailing tastes and mentalities. Despite digital mass media, the poster remains part of the public space and the collective visual memory. As this medium thrives particularly on the immediate effect on its viewer, the museum has involved the public in the conception of the exhibition, by means of six juries who selected the 100 posters on display. The exhibition also offers a "Short History of the Poster", an animated projection and a room dedicated to poster production.
Lëtzebuerg City Museum, located at 14 Rue du St Esprit (L-1475) in Luxembourg-Ville, is open to the public Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 to 18:00 and on Thursdays from 10:00 to 20:00.
