Lëtz Art ASBL was established in 2019 with the idea of using art as a means of combating social challenges in Luxembourg. It harnesses the potentials and creativity of art to complement traditional solutions currently being implemented towards the fight against social vices such as domestic abuse, racism, and more.
Its founding members, with their diverse cultural and professional backgrounds, all share the same passion for seeing a more inclusive, peaceful and progressive society. As a non-profit organisation, Lëtz Art would like to make the most of people's appreciation for art to communicate and increase awareness of pressing social issues.
Violence is central to patriarchy, and Western society’s various forms of systemic violence
are interconnected. Recognising similarities across forms of oppression such as racism, child abuse, speciesism, and sexism, for example, is essential. We can curb this tendency only if all forms of violence are exposed and challenged - rape and slaughter, rodeos and brothels. We cannot expect to put out the fire by removing only one coal.
