Luxembourg | project room @ aquarium | artist residency call


In 2014, Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain hosts the next edition of project room @ aquarium, an artist-in-residency programme based in the so-called "Aquarium", a 175 sqm steel and glass pavilion. This international residency programme is welcoming proposals taking full advantage of the place's very specific architecture, as well as applications aiming to stimulate exchange and debate in relation with the local context and socio-cultural issues in Luxembourg.

project room @ aquarium forms an integral part of the Casino Luxembourg's agenda of exhibitions and events. The participants' project will be exhibited over a period of 6 weeks at the end of the residency and documented in a publication.

The residency is open to all individuals or artists collectives wishing to develop their practice in a professional context by creating a new work. Applicants are free to choose their means of artistic expression but must have accomplished a master degree in arts (or equivalent) by the beginning of the residency, or, for non-degree holders, must give documented proof of at least a three-year work and exhibition practice. Applicants should not be older than 40 years. In order to facilitate communication with the local scene, participants should be fluent in either English, French or German. All applicants must hold a valid visa for the duration of the residency.

Casino Luxembourg will provide financial and technical support and will be in charge of implementing the artist’s project to a maximum cost of EUR 10,000. Participants will be accommodated in a International artist-in-residency programme project room @ aquarium centrally located, self-sufficient flat in Luxembourg city.

Casino Luxembourg will take over the artist’s travel costs to and from Luxembourg and will provide a bulk sum of EUR 2,000 toward general expenses, to be paid in four instalments, the first of which will be made upon arrival. At the end of the residency, participants will receive an artist fee of EUR 1,500.

Deadline for applications: 13 May 2013
