Call for candidates - Artistic Research Lab

Echoes and resonances in collective artistic research


Living up to its mission as a Space for Artistic Research, Casino Display will be hosting its annual Artistic Research Lab between September 2024 and May 2025, this time in collaboration with ENSAD Nancy and HEAR Strasbourg. Based on a practice-led approach to knowledge production, Casino Display will become a transdisciplinary meeting point where a selected group of artists, graphic designers, and young and early-career researchers can rely on the logic of experimentation for the emergence of unchartered knowledge. Participants will have the possibility to think with and experiment along professionals of the art world, whilst proposing a space for trying out unfinished ideas and probing freshly sketched concepts. In short, the goal is to create a space where the drive for experimentation encourages knowledge. 

In order to encourage group synergy, the participants will be staying in Luxembourg during the research weeks. Transport and accommodation will be covered by Casino Luxembourg. Material costs (within the limits of the production budget), as well as costs related to seminars and workshops will also be taken care of. The team of Casino Luxembourg will assist the participants all along the research weeks with professional help and support. 

For this year’s edition of the Artistic Research Lab, we will turn our attention to the echoes and resonances emerging in collective artistic research.

Our aim will be to transcend the disciplinary boundaries, delving into the abstract network of relations that allows various artistic and research practices to resonate, notwithstanding the diversity of methodologies and subjects, and to think attunement through collective thinking.
