The BlackBox, a new space for artists’ film and video projections is installed on the ground floor of the Casino Luxembourg and is dedicated to contemporary video, regularly renewing its program either with projections by a single artist or video collections of different artists on a specific theme.

The film καλειδοσκόπιο (kaleidoscope in Greek, from kalos (beautiful), eidos (image) and skopein (watch) is the result of a journey undertaken by Nora Wagner and Roman Simian from April to September 2015.

During their trip, they crossed fifteen European countries and spent extended periods in Greece (then - and still - in crisis), Moldova, Luxembourg and Latvia, where they met and collaborated with local artists within the framework of a Nomad Workshop. Indeed, the two artists propose a nomadic artform, an art that is "outside the loop" and "off the beaten track". The film provides a kaleidoscopic vision of the journey. The images are complemented by three simultaneously broadcast sound sources. These come from recorded sounds along with recitations of texts written by the two artists during the trip. Caléidoscope thus documents a journey through videos, writings and recordings made throughout the European continent by two artists who had previously occupied the gallery Bradtke in Luxembourg as a temporary exhibition space and space for sharing.
