Mike Bourscheid, born in 1984 in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg), studied at the Université d’Aix-Marseille (France) and Universität der Künste Berlin (Germany). Today, he lives and works in Luxembourg and in Vancouver, Canada. Recent exhibitions include: Access Gallery Vancouver (Canada), Nanaimo Art Gallery (Canada), Centre d’art Œil de Poisson in Quebec City (Canada) and Centre d’art Nei Liicht in Dudelange (Luxembourg). In 2015 he was nominated for the Prix d’art Robert Schuman; in 2010 he won the IBB-Preis für Fotografie.
The coordination of the Luxembourg Pavilion is under the auspices of Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain.
Casino Luxembourg holds contemporary art exhibitions with an international program of mainly younger-generation artists. The art center houses public spaces with a variety of uses and vocations, combining contemporary art with a warm and friendly meeting place. Temporary exhibitions – artists’ monographs and themed exhibitions are completed by a varied cultural program. Far from any museological concerns, the Casino functions like an artistic and experimental think tank heading for the latest trends in the art scene.
