More about the Artmix project
After the Artmix project was temporarily suspended due to the pandemic, it is back with a new concept and new partners in Luxembourg in 2023. 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 project, which has been running since 2005, brings artists from the Greater Region together. 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.
