Letterbox - Making shell companies visible. Digital history as a tool to unveil global networks and local infrastructures
1 March 2022 to 28 February 2025
Letterboxes, representing shell companies, are an emblematic symbol for a form of international capitalism that has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years and serve as a focal point for international criticism of the Luxembourgish financial system. LETTERBOX is an innovative project that mixes recent questions in financial history with cutting-edge digital history. It will situate Luxembourg in a global financial geography and unveil the local ecology of lawyers, notaries and accountancies in a historical perspective.
