Culture: The September 15 launch of an ambitious three-month programme at the Casino also sees the art museum’s “aquarium” transformed into a temporary café by Ture Hedberg and the team from Konrad Café & Bar.

Ca(fé)sino, as it has been named, is a cool yet cosy space with furniture recycled from old palettes.
It is open for snacks and drinks from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
The café is already proving popular with visitors and the artists involved in the Atelier Luxembourg--Making of project. Curated by Casino artistic director Kevin Muhlen, together with Isabelle Henrion and Mirjam Bayerdörfer, the project is playing host to 15 artists from or connected with Luxembourg who have each been given a dedicated workspace in the Casino’s exhibition cubes. They can do with that space what they want, using it as a de facto studio to create a new work or collaborate with others in the project.
At the end of the project, in December, some of the furniture from Ca(fé)sino will be auctioned off for a good cause.
