Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art announces new publications

Alongside its exhibitions and its artists-in-residency programme, Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain regularly publishes catalogues and artists’ books relating to its artistic programme. In 2011, new publications, whether monographs or collective catalogues, were thus released. Rather than mere documentation about the exhibitions, these publications are complementary to the projects as they provide a platform for concepts and collaborations that did not find a place in the exhibitions themselves. The monographs are an important working and promotional tool for the artists, and a means for Casino Luxembourg to achieve greater visibility outside the exhibition context. Some of these publications are long-term projects, spreading over one or two years.

Graphic Design: Atelier Olivier Lamy, Brussels.

Upon invitation of Casino Luxembourg, guest curator Emmanuel Lambion realised Found in Translation, Chapter L, an exhibition based on the concept of translation, not through a linguistic acceptance of “translation”, but closer to its wider etymological meaning of creating and opening semantic fields through the displacement of a specific parameter. Thirty international artists presented works questioning widely accepted concepts on art and beyond.
