Siegerkunst

Conference in German

Art as a status symbol for the rich and powerful: the author and art critic Wolfgang Ullrich describes an artworld in decline. The independent artist is no longer independent but caters to the desire of exclusivity, luxury and self-representation of a few collectors. The question is, what does this art look like?

Wolfgang Ullrich studied philosophy and history of art. Since 2006, he has been Professor of Art History and Media Theory at the Karlsruhe Design Academy, and since 2014, Vice President of Research. In 2015, he left his post as a professor to work as an independent writer in Leipzig and Munich.

Alongside the exhibition Theater of Disorder by Martine Feipel & Jean Bechameil at Casino Luxembourg, their kinetic and sound work Ballet of Destruction will be presented exclusively at LUXEMBOURG ART WEEK.

Ballet of Destruction was produced during the artists' residency in Esch-Belval as part of the Public Art Experience – BeHave project.

Prix Edward Steichen

Mudam Luxembourg

The Edward Steichen Award Luxembourg is a biennial art prize supporting emerging European talents in the field of contemporary art and photography. It was initiated to create an opportunity for young practitioners to expand their horizon, as well as to contribute to establishing networks between international artistic communities. A particular emphasis is put on links between the art communities of Luxembourg and New York, where the Luxembourg-born, American artist, photographer and curator Edward Steichen gained artistic prominence. The prize consists of two residencies at the International Studio and Curatorial Programme in Brooklyn, New York, a bustling hub of creative excellence. The Edward Steichen Award Laureates will be announced and presented to the public during a festive ceremony at Mudam Luxembourg.
