For REMIX PLACE, a group of researchers, a photographer, a playwright, and a sound artist have been exploring the Terres Rouges on both sides of the Franco-Luxembourg border. This atypical observation of daily life encourages encounters with people who make this landscape, in which silent metal ruins still stand, where border flows are only increasing.
The idea of ”being-together” is at the center of our thinking and action. How are inhabitants attached to where they live, work, and play? And how do powerful historical, economic, and personal forces influence these connections?
In Summer 2022, our Agora Café shared the stories we collected throughout our exploration of the Minett. We traveled to key public places to create a discussion space for residents’ visions of the future of the region. On July 22, we concluded the 2022 Agora Cafe series with an exhibition of residents’ collaborative visions for the future of the region, photographs by David Schalliol, and sound art by François Martig.
