In March 1996, Casino Luxembourg became Luxembourg’s first forum of contemporary art. Its aim is to present today’s visual arts with all their diversity and complexity.
Contemporary art is one of the most noteworthy means of questioning our essential values, and a possible approach to our inner lives, despite (or because of) the crises it has to face regularly. To give people the opportunity to reflect on art and to formulate their own opinions, without giving in to prevailing prejudices, is one of the Casino Luxembourg’s major goals, and a step toward individual freedom of opinion.
