CALL FOR PROJECTS 

Funded Residency Artmix Luxembourg-Saarbrücken 2023-2024


The City of Luxembourg and the State Capital of Saarbrücken invite artists and curators to apply! 

The exhibitions organised as part of the Artmix artist exchange will take place in May 2024 at the Cercle Cité and the Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken. The studio residencies will take place at the Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken and in neimënster/Luxembourg. The Casino Display is a network partner.

The residency exchange programme Artmix (11th edition: 2019), which until now was held annually, is being rethought in 2023: In addition to artists, the programme will now also involve curators.

The aim is to promote networking between neighbouring art scenes and different disciplines on a regional level. In doing so, new forms of cooperation and professionalisation are made possible.

A jury will select an artist with a connection to Luxembourg and one with a connection to Saarbrücken, as well as a curator or a curatorial team. The selected artists will then each invite another artist to join the project.

Together, the participants will develop a complete exhibition project, including press and public relations work, documentation and a cultural mediation programme. An open studio or workshop will complete the project.

During the exchange, the participants will work together for three weeks in Luxembourg (neimënster) in December 2023 and for three weeks in Saarbrücken (Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken) in February / March 2023.

To capture the Artmix project, the time spent together and the resulting exhibition will be documented. Documenting the project is the responsibility of the artists and curators.

The participants are responsible for organising the exhibition, the opening and involving the two locations of Luxembourg and Saarbrücken. The hosting institutions in each location will support and assist the project.

Who can apply?
We are looking for one artist from Luxembourg and one artist from Saarland (two in total), plus one curator or a curatorial team from either Luxembourg or Saarland. Artists and curators with a connection to the regions can apply regardless of age or nationality.
