SORCERY, POLITICS, AND THE ECSTASY OF DUST
Gast Bouschet is an artist and occult philosopher born in Luxembourg in 1958. Since the 1980s, he has created a complex body of work that challenges the fundamental principles underlying structure, visibility and power. His work spans a wide range of media, including photography, sound, video, painting, sculpture and writing. Bouschet’s art has been presented in some 300 solo and group exhibitions worldwide. In 2009, together with his partner Nadine Hilbert, he represented Luxembourg at the 53rd Venice Biennale. In 2021, the Grand Duke of Luxembourg appointed Gast Bouschet a Knight of the Order of Merit in recognition of his commitment to the service of culture in Luxembourg. In recent years, Bouschet has increasingly focused on sorcerous interventions that he performs in marginal places and wilderness areas away from the public gaze.
