Bettina Steinbrügge, director of Mudam Luxembourg, curated a selection of artists whose artistic practices encompass a variety of approaches, themes and techniques, spanning from drawings, photographs and sculptures to tapestries, prints and performances.

The curator writes about her selection for TheArtists: «My selection is based on my many years of working with exciting artists. I did not choose according to a theme, nor did I follow a certain artistic medium, nor did I want to fulfill a certain quota. The selection is based on working with and following certain artistic works that for some reason have not yet arrived in the general art market. Probably this art market is also not the right place for these artists, who all often pursue a highly topical transdisciplinary practice and do not allow themselves to be pinned down. They all consistently pursue a specific interest, whether in form or content, work on the continuation of contemporary art and have found convincing forms to describe our contemporary being or to react to it.»
