May 25 – Sep 8, 2024
Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain
Luxembourg

In the exhibition and the eponymous artist’s book, My Last Will, 32 contemporary, international artists and artist groups respond to the question “What remains?”. They individually explore their legacy and try, each in their own way, to capture the core of what makes up their goals and interests with a central statement or a paradigmatic work. In doing so, they question their presumed significance for a future they will no longer experience and whose measures of value are still completely unknown to them.

“What remains?” is a question that gains a special topicality against the backdrop of the pandemic and a war in Europe, and the associated change in perspective and values.

The artists’ examination is designed as a free, open-ended experiment. The starting point for the engagement with the question is the artist book My Last Will, in which specially developed text, collage, and image contributions from the participants are collected. Five commissioned works were also created in the context of the exhibition.

  • Mikiko Hara: Small Myths
    Publication
    Chose Commune
    International

    Mikiko Hara has her own way of secretly capturing the strangers who cross her path: a young man on the train, a couple holding hands, a little girl playing in a park… Sometimes their eyes meet briefly as she presses the shutter, but Mikiko Hara does not exchange with her subjects. Yet, these portraits reveal something infinitely personal, as if the photographer and her subjects were bound by an invisible pact (more…)

  • Georg Kussmann: FRG
    Publication
    MACK
    International

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
