Mudam Akademie 2021–2022

Mudam Akademie 2021–2022

Focused on exploring the beginnings of modern art to the present day, the Mudam Akademie programme is aimed at all individuals who wish to acquire or deepen their knowledge of modern and contemporary art. Each lecture takes as its starting point a work of art on display at Mudam in order to identify a theme, leading to a review of the major currents and movements in the history of 20th century art.

The Mudam Akademie lecture series is organised in collaboration with Luxembourg’s Ministry of National Education, Children and Youth. 

Lecturer: Claude Moyen
Claude Moyen holds an arts doctorate and teaches art education at Diekirch high school, where he also coordinates the BTS Media Writing diploma. From 2006 to 2017, he served as Mudam’s educational advisor. In 2010 he introduced Mudam Akademie – a lecture series on the history of modern and contemporary art, which has been the subject of a publication, Eng Geschicht vun der Konscht vun haut [A History of the Art of Today] (Éditions Mudam).
