Detroit is a project by artists on the LUX Associate
Artists Programme 2009/10.
The LUX Associate Artists Programme (AAP) is a postacademic
12 month professional development course
for artists working with the moving image. It aims to
provide an intensive course of development focused
on critical discourse, extending to the practical and
infrastructural issues that present challenges for
artists working with the medium through seminars,
mentorship and a final funded public project.
The programme is managed and facilitated by LUX,
an arts agency which explores ideas around artists’
moving image practice through exhibition, distribution,
publishing, education and research. It is funded by the
Leverhulme Trust and Arts Council England.
Detroit is a series of projects that come out of the discussions and problems generated from an initial proposition that we collectively purchase a property in Detroit.
