Ceci n'est pas un Casino
Sixteen artists turn the visitor to the exhibition into a gambler in the Casino, which is not a casino... The ambiguity is at its height, as the exhibition coincides with the 15th anniversary of the Casino as an exhibition space. The retrospective gesture is expressed in the catalogue, which, in addition to an introduction to the exhibition by curators Kevin Muhlen and Jo Kox, a study on gambling by psychiatrist Paul Rauchs, an analysis of the ludic in the history of art by Bettina Steinbrügge, contains texts on the history of the building and its multiple uses, by Marc Jeck, Paul Reiles and Didier Damiani.
