Welcome to the weekend! See American rockabilly, discover Lux on capital for charity, see Iran exhibition, get second-hand clothes or party at LOA.

1. Last weekend to see Iran Between Times

What: Photography exhibition
National History and Art Museum, Marché-aux-Poissons, 2345 Luxembourg -  Google Maps
When: Until Sunday, 11 September - info & tickets

This weekend is your last chance to see photography exhibition Iran Between Times, which has been running at the national history museum for about a year now. Alfred Seiland, a well-known Austrian photographer, is exhibiting 60 photographs from his Iran series, which he began in 2017. Iran Between Times draws on the interplay between past and present and the ways in which people relate to it. The selection encompasses landscape photographs, illustrating the rich and complex history of Iran, as well as photographs of unadulterated scenes from everyday Iranian life. With this project, the photographer aims to challenge the viewer to critically think about how Western media oftentimes fail to represent an unprejudiced and unbiased view of the former Persian Empire, and to reflect at the same time on the major socio-political topics that are at the forefront of Iran's society today. Definitely worth a visit.
