Sculpture in the street – Esch-sur-Alzette, European Capital of Culture 2022

As European Capital of Culture 2022, Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg, where I live, has brought the art of sculpture to the street in the form of ‘Nothing Is Permanent’ (title in English), a set of sculptures placed strategically around the ‘Metropolis of Iron’. There are 23 works, each by a different international artist. A map in the main square locates them all. See also: https://nothingispermanent.lu/en/

This initiative is much to be commended. Indeed nothing is permanent in this life, but these sculptures will be here for a while. Here are two: ‘Heimatlos’ (in German, ‘Without a Homeland’) by Barthélémy Toguo, outside the Palace of Justice;

and ‘Points of View’ by Tony Cragg, right at the centre of things in the main square!
