Next up is a deeply inspiring exhibition focussing on three young photographers and their visualisation of post-apartheid Africa.

The modestly titled 3 Stories show offers a photographic insight into life, love & death in some of the world's most underprivileged places captured by photographers Pieter Hugo, Mikhael Subotzky & Paolo Woods.

No fancy shooting locations or Crewdsonesque mise-en-scènes, but honest and candid portraits of Mid- & South Africans (... and their fluffy pets!). Don't miss this exhibition if you happen to be in Luxembourg.
