Why did you participate in LUX:plorations?
“When Serge Haan came to meet luxemburgish bandes dessinées artists in Contern at the festival in summer 2019 and presented the first Descom.Uni.lu book « Wëssenschaft zu Lëtzebuerg – Ënner d’Lupp geholl », I immediately agreed to participate to further projects and agreed with him, that the concept is a very good idea, as I had already had a similar experience.”
What did you like most about LUX:plorations?
“The teamwork! Drawing is a quite solitary profession. Working with brilliant students and fantastic university teachers was definitely enriching.”
What was the biggest challenge for you?
“Creating bandes dessinnées in a foreign language. Almost no one in the groups used his own native language.”
