Banque de Luxembourg has always been deeply committed to its role as a socially and economically responsible company. It gets involved in the economic and community-based activities of its host countries and actively supports different forms of artistic expression. Its partnership with the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art (Mudam) is a good example of this.
Created to commemorate the 25-year reign of Grand Duke Jean, Mudam Luxembourg opened to the public in 2006, giving a face to contemporary art in Luxembourg and helping to promote the Grand Duchy abroad. Through its collection and programming, the museum aims to make art accessible to a broad audience.
An iconic building
Designed by the famous Chinese-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei, Laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, Mudam Luxembourg is located on the Kirchberg plateau in Dräi Eechelen Park, itself designed by landscape architect Michel Desvigne and a major feature of the capital’s historic centre. The museum’s location creates a dialogue between the natural space of the former Fort Thüngen, the site's historical past and an urban environment.
The museum is arranged over three floors and has 4,000m2 of exhibition space. Intended to provide a better understanding of the role of art as well as its own role, it features a collection of almost 700 works by artists from Luxembourg and around the world, in all media. Many of the creations commissioned by Mudam have been designed and produced with this institution’s very special architecture in mind.
A partnership in support of artistic expression
Wishing to support an emerging cultural player, the Bank partnered with Mudam in 2000, before it even opened to the public, sponsoring its pre-opening programme.
And so it was that in 2004 the walls of the Bank's former exhibition space in Kirchberg became Mudam’s “base camp”, bringing the museum “alive” before it officially opened its doors. That same space had already been used to host the Bank's own exhibitions, covering a wide range of fields from architecture and popular art to photography and much more. The Bank has applied the same concept when it comes to music, organising classical or jazz concerts in its auditorium with performances by well-known artists.
Today Banque de Luxembourg is delighted to continue to support artistic creation in Luxembourg through this partnership.
