About

A place of work, of research, of exchanges and orientation, with the aim of encouraging and supporting young creatives. The programme at Casino Display is arranged by Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain.

By agreement with the Ministry of Culture and with the aim of expanding its reach, from February 2021 Casino Luxembourg has taken over managing the programme for the Konschthaus Beim Engel gallery, now known as Casino Display.

In the absence of art schools in Luxembourg and of relatively institutionalised contemporary art, it was vital to create a platform aimed at promoting the freshest creativity and of supporting the young creatives of today and tomorrow.

One of the roles of Casino Display will be to offer orientation for young people, enabling them to familiarise themselves more easily with the range of creative courses on offer in art schools and the variety of opportunities out there. With this in mind, the Casino Display programme particularly envisages encouraging cross-fertilisation between practices and interdisciplinary encounters.

In parallel with this, a talent search will be undertaken throughout the year in the four schools of art with which Casino Luxembourg has forged partnerships (ÉSAL – École supérieure d’art de Lorraine, Metz/Épinal; ENSAD – École nationale supérieure d’art et de design, Nancy; HEAR – Haute École des arts du Rhin, Strasbourg/Mulhouse; HBKsaar – Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar, Saarbrücken). This talent search and dialogue will be conducted with, at its heart, the possibility for the selected students to exhibit at Casino Display.

Research

Living up to its mission as a Space for Artistic Research, between September 2023 and February 2024 Casino Display will organise the second edition of its Artistic Research Lab. Based on a practice-led approach to knowledge production, Casino Display will become a transdisciplinary meeting point where a selected group of art students can rely on the logic of experimentation for the emergence of unchartered knowledge. Students will have the possibility to think with and experiment along professionals of the art world, whilst proposing a space for trying out unfinished ideas, probing freshly sketched concepts, or reversing solid ontologies in favour of more flexible ones. In short, the goal is to create a space where the drive for experimentation encourages knowledge.  

Milieus of [Fictions] in Milieus
September 2023 - February 2024 

Resident artists: Agnieszka Antkowiak, Emma Dupré, Seohyeon Kim, Maitiú Mac Cárthaigh, Alexis Puget, Josefina Sundblad

Guest speakers: Jeff Diamanti (University of Amsterdam), Dr. Jean Botev (University of Luxembourg), Sonia D'Alto (independent curator, author), Alice Twemlow (University of Amsterdam, Royal Academy of Art, The Hague - KABK)

While milieus are perceptual worlds in which evolve human and non-human beings alike, fictions are stories, technologies or systems that are created as a support to hold and to explore the unknown. Artists intervene on both levels, by questioning the fictions holding old meanings in place, fictionning alternatives, engaging in fictional and conceptual displacement.  

After Experimental Re(é)[flex|ct|ion] Expérimentale in 2022-23, this second edition of the Artistic Research Lab will investigate worlds of unknown realities, which are yet to be fully articulated but that are nonetheless perceivable. We will explore how fiction can be used as a research method creating its own milieu while spreading into others. We will focus on the potential of artistic research as a way to move out of the confines of language by relying on direct engagement with materiality, concepts, thoughts, affects, and feelings, in order to confront systems of knowledge and to create new narratives.

Artist residencies

Casino Display also offers a six-month artist residency. It is part of the natural evolution and continuous development of the residency programme that Casino Luxembourg has pursued since 2010. The residency at Casino Display is primarily intended as a time of research and dialogue. The outcome of the residency can be an exhibition, but in essence, no finished results are obligatory.

March to July 2024: ludovic hadjeras

ludovic hadjeras (born in France in 1996) is a visual artist whose work addresses identity-related issues through the relationships between humans and non-humans. In his practice, he focuses on the spaces occupied by other animals by seeking contact and sometimes collaborating with them. Living between Amsterdam and Algiers, his movements and the encounters to which they give rise are reflected in his work, which takes the form of installations, sculptures, videos and texts.  

ludovic hadjeras took part in the artistic research laboratory Experimental Re(é)[flex|ct|ion] Expérimentale at Casino Display in 2022. In 2019, the artist was part of the group of students from the Haute École des arts du Rhin (HEAR) who organised the exhibition caméra silex patates germées. There he presented the performance Le loup ne peut guetter la lune qu'en sortant de la forêt.

« « « « DOCUMENTAIRE ANIMALIER » » » » (AVEC QUATRE GUILLEMETS)

Artist: Emma Dupré 

September - March 2024 

Exhibition: 23.02 - 04.03.2024
Opening: Friday 23.02.2024 

Since September 2023, a new residency is in place in a school environment, in collaboration with Fondation Sommer and the Lycée des Arts et Métiers. During this residency, artist Emma Dupré  is working on establishing new ways of paying attention to the non-humans with whom we share our daily lives without even noticing them. The project is based on a collaboration between the artist and students at the Lycée des Arts et Métiers, through the artist's presence in the school and a series of workshops in the classrooms. The aim is to explore what we sometimes call the banal, which, through artistic creation, can take on new dimensions. The emphasis is on group observation, rush exchanges, scriptwriting and low-cost alternative creation.   

In order to encourage this contact, the artist has a working space at her disposal inside the Lycée des Arts et Métiers. Students are encouraged to get in touch with her on a daily basis, and also to continue their reflections on the project outside the workshops.

The residency will culminate in an exhibition at Casino Display with works by the students and the artist.

ARTMIX 2024

Artists: Noé Duboutay, Sophia Lökenhoff, Darja Linder, Hannah Mevis

In a wish to foster intercultural cooperation between Luxembourg and Saarland, and in order to give Luxembourg and German visual artists and curators the opportunity to initiate joint projects, the cities of Luxembourg and Saarbrücken have joined forces to relaunch cross-border project ARTMIX as a biannual edition. 

Casino Display is joining forces with Cercle Cité, neimënster, the City of Luxembourg and the City of Saarbrücken, and will set up a networking programme, enabling emerging artists to make contact with professionals in the arts sector.

The expert jury chose the artists Noé Duboutay (in collaboration with Sophia Lökenhoff) and Darja Linder (in collaboration with Hannah Mevis). Together, they will be taking part in artist residencies in neimënster and at the Stadtgalerie in Saarbrücken. A joint exhibition will be held at the Cercle Cité Ratskeller and the Saarbrücken Stadtgalerie in summer 2024.
