Esch-sur-Alzette is the second largest city in Luxembourg. Here, since 2014, the Festival, which started from the Kulturfabrik cultural center, has been carrying out an artistic and cultural program with the aim of transforming urban space in a sustainable way and promoting social cohesion throughout the Greater Region. The latter is a territory that extends and touches the whole of Luxembourg, the Belgian province of Liège, the French Lorraine, the Saarland and the German Rhineland.
In this Edition of Kufa’s Urban ArtFestival we check out the latest work of Spanish artist Julieta XLF and what a cheerful mural she has created on a new Rehabilitation Centre for drug addiction in a small city of Luxembourg.“Recently I was invited to take part at 2018 edition of Kufa’s Urban Art Festival in Luxembourg. The philosophy of Kufa’s Urban Art is based on a bottom-up approach and offers a large range of pedagogical activities in the public space, artistic interventions and open air festivals. The project applies to the whole population, with a special focus on vulnerable social groups. "I was invited to paint the facade of the new Centre for Drug Addicts in Esch Sur Alzette were I painted “NICTE-NOCHE”" says the artist. From greek mythology, Nicte (Noche) was born from Khaos and with Darkness conceived the Light and Day. She accompanies in the shadows waiting for a new dawn. The goddess of the night, one of the primordial gods who emerged as the dawn of creation.”
