WaterWalls Festival: Call for Land Art, Architecture, Design, Visual Art Installations (Luxembourg)

WaterWalls Festival 2023

The municipality of Esch-sur-Sûre, Luxembourg is renewing the WaterWalls Festival for a second edition. It is the first cultural festival based on the principles of the circular economy. As an open-air exhibition of contemporary art, the festival aims to raise awareness about the artistic production and consumption aspects of culture. In 2023, four autonomous and participative art installations will be set up along the Sûre river, at the level of the four compensation dams, downstream of the large dam, in the idyllic valley of Esch-sur-Sûre. These installations will form an ephemeral art trail from 10 June – 10 September 2023.

The municipality of Esch-sur-Sûre will award a maximum of €40,000 per selected project for three projects. The fourth project, a ‘young creation’ project, will be awarded €25,000.

This call for projects is open to all artists or artist collectives from the following artistic fields: architecture, design, visual art. The project is aimed at professional artists (from Luxembourg or abroad) who have a good command of their art and previous experience of creation in public space and/or in the natural environment. The latter must demonstrate their ability to transcribe and raise awareness through their work of the challenges of sustainable development and the circular economy, while at the same time enhancing the natural heritage and the territory in which the festival is taking place. The proposed project must be original and not have been shown in any other venue, in any form whatsoever, before the end of the festival.
