Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert began collaborating in the 1990s. They have since created a complex body of work that challenges the fundamental principles underlying structure, visibility and power. Their practice spans an extensive range of media including photography, sound, video, painting, sculpture and text based work.

Bouschet and Hilbert’s interventions are put into effect in marginal places and wilderness areas away from the public gaze as well as in contemporary art institutes and music festivals including BPS22, Charleroi, Belgium; Serralves Foundation, Porto, Portugal; Insomnia Festival, Tromsø, Norway; Bozar Brussels, Belgium; Darling Foundry Montreal, Canada; Cube Space Taipei, Taiwan; Philharmonie, Luxembourg; Muzeum Sztuki Lodz, Poland; Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna, Austria; Casino Forum d’Art Contemporain, Luxembourg; Busan Biennale of Contemporary Art, South-Korea; Camouflage Johannesburg, South Africa; Muhka Antwerp Belgium and CCA Glasgow, United Kingdom among others. In 2009 they represented Luxembourg at the 53rd Venice Biennale.
