For several months now, KompleX KapharnaüM has been cultivating ‘Bloom’ in and around Esch. Throughout 2021, our team has conducted numerous discovery walks across the territory. At regular intervals, we travelled to Esch to explore the city and knock on doors to meet its inhabitants, from here and elsewhere, with the aim of collecting personal stories and charting anemotional memory map of the area.

In March 2022, this long-term exploration of the nooks and crannies of the city will materialise as an ephemeral piece of architecture in the heart of the city. For three weeks, on Brillplaz, we will install Square Bloom, an unexpected, open, spectacular space, in which we will share our encounters and engage in discussions about the city of Esch/Alzette, its history and, above all, its future.

What kind of city will flourish on the remains of the past? What will its colours be? What are your desires for the future? To outline these perspectives, to sow the seeds of the future, we invite you to come to Bloom Square and its café and bring it to life with us. Whether you are a resident, a passer-by or simply curious: everyone can come to the Brillplaz every day!

Have a drink at Café Bloom, discover the images and words we collected in the Terres Rouges, listen and take part in conversations, express your thoughts and feelings on the dazibaos, paint your favourite colours on the walls of Café Bloom. From 14 to 27 March, Square Bloom will act as a meeting place for the inhabitants, organisations, artists, creators and sportspeople of the city who form the soil for future blossomings.

Each day of the week is structured around a series of special moments: an open stage with a host of surprises (concerts, readings, physical activities) during the lunch break; colouring activities during after-school snack time; conversations at the end of the afternoon; Remix performances at the end of the day. This daily programme will be punctuated by special events on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
