Casino Luxembourg presents Celebration Factory, by Filip Markiewicz.
The concept of Celebration Factory is to provide a presentation that evolves in space and in time, functioning as an experimental and artistic laboratory. This migration is, in part, an autobiographical mirror for the artist from the project’s debut at NN Contemporary Art in Northampton (UK) in 2016, home to a significant Polish diaspora, and the artist’s native Luxembourg.
Celebration Factory is the product of a Europe in transformation and marked by deep crises, but also an artistic response to this new socio-political paradigm. Party and celebration become the vehicles of awareness, a questioning of the system that surrounds us or a resistance to the reign of fear.
Friday 28 September 28, 6 p.m. – 12 a.m.
