Lang/Baumann: Beautiful Steps #10
Today I went to Casino Luxembourg, a contemporary art forum in the city centre. It's true that I could visit more art events and museums in Luxembourg because plenty is going on and I've certainly been missing out on a lot. I hadn't been to Casino for many many years and it was really interesting to see how the space has changed.

In the past this room was divided up into white cubes whose walls were used to display exhibitions. These cubes have now been taken down, they were ground and are now covering the floor of the room where they once stood (on a temporary basis).
The story behind these pink candies was also a very surprising discovery. The sweets are in the shape of the Eye Idol, an ancient sculpture from Syria.
It was possible to eat the sweets and buy some; the proceeds are for Syrian refugees.
This is what I was up to earlier on: I had brunch with a friend at La Table du Pain. There are several options to choose from and I tried the cheese brunch. It was good but I would try a different option next time. I might also come here for lunch at some point because there are lots of tempting salads on the menu too.
