The exhibition starts with the precursors of the associations in the Ancien Régime, the brotherhoods and the Freemasons, whereas the roots of the “modern” associations go back to the beginning of the 19th century, when several reading societies were founded. After the constitution of 1848 granted the Luxembourgers freedom of association, numerous sports and cultural clubs were formed, which became a phenomenon in society as a whole. Their success continued until the German occupation during the Second World War. After the war, most of the clubs resumed their activities.
In cooperation with various associations located on the territory of Luxembourg City, this exhibition presents a variety of historical objects from the possession of active or already disbanded associations.
A catalogue will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.
