Thursday 29th June at 19:00 - Annual Dinner with Guest Speaker

Our annual dinner will take place at the Cercle Munster, starting with an aperitif at 19:00. This year, our guest speaker will be Bob Kneip, the distinguished Luxembourgish entrepreneur and founder of KNEIP. His topic will be “The fund industry - radical change theory”.

Over the past 20 years, Bob Kneip has put his vision and energy into building KNEIP into a preferred partner to the fund industry. He studied at the University of Paris II-Assas and the Institut Supérieur de Gestion, Paris. The business acumen gained from his past experiences as founder of Chèque-Repas Luxembourg S.A., managing director of Germany’s Weka GmbH & Co. KG and managing director of Publicité et Promotion S.à r.l. has contributed to KNEIP’s success. Bob also holds charity and media directorships, which serve to add value not just to the company, but to the industry as a whole.

The menu will be:

  • Risotto fondant à la betterave, ricotta et neige de raifort (vegetarian)
  • Filet de poulet fermier, sauce à l’oseille, chutney d’oignons rouges et pomme purée fouetté à l’huile d’olive;

Saturday 7th October at 17:00 - Tour of the Centre National de l’Audiovisuel, Dudelange

Our guide for this tour, our Rentrée event, will be Paul Lesch, Director of the Centre. Paul is also Chamberlain to the Grand Duc and lectures at the University of Luxembourg, but his main job is at the CNA. The tour will be followed by dinner at the Restaurant Loxalis, which is a six minute walk from the CNA. Paul Lesch and his partner will join us for dinner.

The CNA was created in 1989. Its function is to safeguard and promote Luxembourgish audiovisual art. More specifically it is concerned with photographic, audio and film work created by Luxembourgers or in Luxembourg. The centre also serves as a general exhibition and performance venue. The integrated cinema, Ciné Starlight, frequently shows important art films.

Paul will present the CNA with film and sound clips illustrating the rare audiovisual documents in its archive. Then he will give a tour of the premises: the Médiathèque, the cinema booths, the sound studio, the ‘studio prises de vues’, and the archive vault. It will also be possible to visit the incomparable Bitter Years exhibition, the last exhibition curated by the famous photographer Edward Steichen as Director of the Photography Department of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, which has now found a permanent home in the water tower (“Waassertuerm”) just behind the CNA.

To register for the visit please e-mail dclark “at” pt “dot” lu (replace the “quoted” items by the appropriate symbols) with the subject line “CNA Visit”, giving the number of people and saying whether you wish to come just for the tour or for the dinner as well. Members and their guests who wish to join us for dinner should pay €50,- per person to the Society’s account BCEELULL IBAN LU21 0019 1755 3010 3000, with the reference “CNA Dinner”.
