Event Details

The German Consulate General Presents:

 What is luxury? Luxury was derived from the Latin word “lux“, meaning “light“, “bright“ and „brightness“. When transferred, the luxurious can be interpreted as something that is visible to all. Whereas critics dismiss the luxury as blindness, followers view luxury as a source of enlightenment. The term is diverse, complex, and charged — often, its use is limited to categorize high quality goods, such as expensive cars and jewelry. But what does luxury really mean in today´s global society? 

This exhibition features the works of different creatives from Germany — including artists, designers, filmmakers, and sound designers — who re-evaluated the contemporary role of luxury and encapsulated their visions and agendas through their creations.
