This Strasbourg concert hall is officially the town's "new music hall". But new music does not just mean hip-hop, techno or pop rock, for Laiterie also welcomes artists from the fields of French music, world music and salsa - in fact the program is rich and varied. There is a different concert on almost every night, and the tickets are reasonably priced. Even the bar keeps its prices down, despite a full menu which also includes sandwiches and crepes. At midnight on Fridays, the hall turns into a techno club, inviting local DJs to play before an ever increasing audience. Consult their program to find out what's on.

From 12th May to 27th August 2000, Strasbourg's Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporain (Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art) will be hosting an exhibition entitled: "The surrealists in exile and the beginnings of the New York school: from Max Ernst to Jackson Pollock". From 1939 to 1941, many surrealist painters left the country for a period of exile that was to last until the end of the war. During this time of exile in America, these painters formed very close links with the American artists, which largely contributed to the emergence of a completely new style: Abstract Expressionism. The aim of the exhibition is to show the progress of these artists that had everything against them at the outset, progress that is shown through their works and by means of explanations of the historic context of this period that was artistically very rich and full of turmoil. Admission: 30F (EUR 4.57)
