ArtLx goes Luxembourg: New artists' studios in Luxembourg

With Sara Noel Costa de Araujo and Trixi Weis

Like all professionals, artists need proper workspaces. But with the increasing strain on the housing market in Luxembourg, rental prices are soaring. This means that artists struggle to find decent workshops and are often forced to make do with a table in a shared flat or the cellar of their parents’ home. While local councils have been addressing the issue, their measures currently fail to meet the demand. And yet solutions exist.

Sara Noel Costa de Araujo, architect and founder of studio SNCDA (Luxembourg/Brussels), will present her modular workshop, an autonomous and versatile structure. Trixi Weis, artist and president of the Luxembourg Association of Visual Artists (Association des artistes plasticiens du Luxembourg – AAPL), will discuss the current situation and the advances obtained by the AAPL on this sensitive issue.
