In 2011, Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain will host 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, while welcoming proposals taking full advantage of the place’s very specific architecture, is encouraging 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. Furthermore to the work that the participants are asked to realise during their stay in Luxembourg, they are expected to participate in the activities of Casino Luxembourg on specific occasions to be defined with the Casino team. Their project will be exhibited over a period of two months 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 new work. Applicants are free to choose their means of artistic expression but must give documented proof of at least three years’ work and exhibition practice and 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.

Selection procedure

A jury of experts will select the candidates for the two residencies to be held in 2011 based on the quality of work and the applicants’ potential to use the residency to maximum benefit. The selected candidates will be informed of the jury results via email at the end of February 2011.


The 2010/2011 years’ jury members are Jean-Jacques Dumont, artist and professor, École supérieure d’art Metz Métropole (ESAMM) and École Supérieure des Arts décoratifs de Strasbourg (ÉSADS); Berit Fischer, freelance curator, Berlin; Emmanuel Lambion, freelance curator and art worker / Bn Projects, Brussels; Kevin Muhlen, artistic director, Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain; Christine Walentiny, exhibitions manager and project coordinator, Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain.


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 centrally located, self-sufficient flat at Centre Culturel de Rencontres Abbaye de Neumünster in Luxembourg city. Casino Luxembourg will take over the artist’s travel costs to and from Luxemburg and will provide a bulk sum of EUR 1,800 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.

New-York Historical Society & The New School Schwartz Postdoctoral
Fellows Program

The Bernard and Irene Schwartz Postdoctoral Fellows Program was
established in 2005 to foster a vibrant relation between the New-York
Historical Society and The New School’s Eugene Lang College.
Post-doctoral Fellows are invited to help build this connection through
research, teaching, and public history programming. In the course of a
one-year (non-renewable) fellowship, Bernard and Irene Schwartz fellows
are expected to develop a major research project with the resources of
the New-York Historical Society, to teach two undergraduate courses at
Eugene Lang College, and to share in both institutions’ commitments to
public history.

The successful candidate will be a recent Ph.D. (within past three
years of starting date), with a strong record of previous teaching (as
a TA or otherwise). Candidates must submit a 2-3 page proposal,
describing the theme of the major research project the fellow will
undertake, and stating specifically why the resources of the New-York
Historical Society are critical to the project. Candidates must also
submit a C.V., two letters of recommendation (which may be sent
directly), a short writing sample, and two detailed syllabi outlining
the undergraduate courses they envision teaching at the New School’s
Eugene Lang College. While all areas of American history will be
considered, the College has a particular interest in imaginative
approaches to the teaching of U.S. history, in topical courses which
address, for example, intellectual history, material culture as
history, America in the Age of Revolutions, slavery and its
consequences, patterns of leisure and consumption, urban history, and
history of communication.

The fellowship requires residency in New York for the academic year,
September 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012. Fellows will receive $60,000 plus

Applications must be postmarked by January 12, 2011. Candidates should
