Fiction de David Christoffel...

 

Quelques jours après la Fête de la musique, une mystérieuse panne d'électricité a jeté le conservatoire dans le noir pendant plusieurs heures. Le lendemain matin, on a retrouvé dans la salle Olivier Messiaen, le corps inanimé de madame Traverso, la professeur de flûte. Mais qu'a-t-il bien pu se passer ? Rendez-vous tous les matins de juillet, à 8h45, pour suivre ce polar musical "très" inédit.

Trust Me, I'm an Artist - Towards an Ethics of Art/Science Collaboration created by artist Anna Dumitriu and Pr Bobbie Farsides with Waag Society Art Orienté objet

Trust Me, I'm an Artist - Towards an Ethics of Art/Science Collaboration created by artist Anna Dumitriu and Pr Bobbie Farsides  with Waag Society  Art Orienté objet | confettis | Scoop.it

This book investigates new ethical issues arising through art and science collaboration and considers the roles and responsibilities of the artists, scientists and institutions involved. The projects decribed raise interesting questions for science ethics committees and help to reveal the mechanisms that drive this usually hidden process, enabling readers to understand the driving forces behind ethical decisions and the role of artists working in scientific settings more deeply. 

Xavier Leton's insight:
The project “Trust Me I’m an Artist: Towards an Ethics of Art/Science Collaboration” was created by artist Anna Dumitriu and Professor Bobbie Farsides (Chair of Ethics, Brighton and Sussex Medical School) in collaboration with Waag Society and The University of Leiden. The book features projects by Adam Zaretsky, Neal White, Anna Dumitriu and Art Orienté objet.

Tarkovsky Films Now Free Online

Tarkovsky Films Now Free Online | confettis | Scoop.it
Watch online six films by the legendary Russian filmmaker, Andrei Tarkovsky: Ivan’s Childhood, Andrei Rublev, Solaris, The Mirror, Stalker, Nostalghia, plus Tarkovsky's student films.
Xavier Leton's insight:

Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) firmly positioned himself as the finest Soviet director of the post-War period. But his influence extended well beyond the Soviet Union.  The Cahiers du cinéma consistently ranked his films on their top ten annual lists. Ingmar Bergman went so far as to say, “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.” And Akira Kurosawa acknowledged his influence too, adding, “I love all of Tarkovsky’s films. I love his personality and all his works. Every cut from his films is a marvelous image in itself.”

Shot between 1962 and 1986, Tarkovsky’s seven feature films often grapple with metaphysical and spiritual themes, using a distinctive cinematic style. Long takes, slow pacing and metaphorical imagery – they all figure into the archetypical Tarkovsky film. (Watch the scene from Stalker above.)

JEAN BAUDRILLARD  LE RETOUR !  POUR LA PREMIERE FOIS DISPONIBLE EN GALERIE

Baudrillard c’est l’Intelligence, l’ironie, la poésie. Sans doute l’un des penseurs français les plus lus à l’etranger. Mais c’est aussi – prolongation de sa pensée – tout un corpus photographique qui circule discrètement autour de la planète depuis plus de vingt ans. A Arles, on se souvient bien de la Nuit «Baudrillard» organisée en 2000 au grand Théâtre Antique. Cette année, à l’occasion des Rencontres,  le Magasin de jouets est heureux de présenter quelques unes de ses œuvres et pour la première fois mettra en vente quelques inédits signés de la main de l’auteur. Inédits signés de l’auteur proposés lors de la vente aux enchères.

Expanding Exhibitions: Innovative Approaches to Curating

Expanding Exhibitions: Innovative Approaches to Curating | confettis | Scoop.it
Xavier Leton's insight:

Online course / Duration: From July 23rd to August 13th, 2014 / Application deadline: July 15th, 2014

 

Lecturer: Lauren Reid

 

This course will explore interesting strategies in exhibition-making and ways of thinking about curating by sharing a wide variety of innovative curatorial approaches that are designed to inspire.Expanding Exhibitions is for emerging and established curators who want to open up ways of thinking about their practice from the white cube and beyond.

This course will track significant moments in curatorial history and stimulating case studies, but rather than covering the field chronologically, it will instead focus on key themes and debates within exhibition-making such as the role of the curator, working with time-based media, exhibiting outside the art space and thinking globally. It will cross both inventive exhibition strategies as well as curatorial ethics that will provide opportunity for lively debate and the sharing of ideas between each other each week.

 

Participation fee: 145€

"The Soft, the Hard and the Wet" Residence Donautics Curated by SHU LEA CHEANG

"The Soft, the Hard and the Wet" Residence Donautics Curated by SHU LEA CHEANG | confettis | Scoop.it

“The Soft, the Hard and the Wet” brings together three artists - Afroditi Psarra , Ce Quimera and Robertina Sebjanic - who respectively apply soft circuit, open hardware and bioart / wetlab in their installation and performance.

Xavier Leton's insight:

Lab 1: The Soft

AFRODITI PSARRA (Athens) proposes “Divergence” with a wearable EMF detector. The soft-circuitry garment embedded with a LilyPad Arduino microcontroller and two embroidered coils serving as antennas, intervenes the electromagnetic field that encircles us. The strength of the signals detected manifests itself in the haptic feedback experienced in the form of vibration patterns and sonic feedback in the forms of variant pitches. This formally constructed wearable locates the physicality of human body in perceiving and countering the invisible forces that propagate around us in the form of EM waves. http://afroditipsarra.com

 

Lab 2: The Hard

CE QUIMERA (Barcelona) proposes “There is no body without F[R]ICTION”. F[R]ICTION as a DIY electronic device is built on a synthesizer. The mutant body modified with prostheses situates herself within an expandable architectural space littered with recycled electronic devices. The body/space collide, f(r)ictional sound elements generated. Noise makes up the chaotic imaginary, disrupting the narrative linearity. As a member of Quimera Rosa lab, Ce’s work aims to create a new subjective fiction of body,  playing on the border between body/environment, reality/fiction, human/machine, flesh/plastic, touch/sound. http://quimerarosa.tumblr.com

 

 

Lab 3: The Wet

ROBERTINA SEBJANIC (Ljubljana) proposes “Hydra reminiscence” with an Eleonore’s own DIY wetlab made up with DIY microscope and biotech tools a la Hackteria doctrine. Featuring Hydra, a biologically immortal fresh water animal capable of self-regenerative, as the research subject under the torrents of the Danube, Sebjani plans to conduct a series of experiments in exploring the regenerative properties of Hydra cells. While her study considers human’s eternal quest for prolonged and healthier life span, she aims to create an ambiental poetic immersive performance. http://wiki.ljudmila.org/Uporabnik:Robertina

#Musik&Philo L’éloge du silence - Les rencontres Inattendues - #creation Laurent de Sutter essayiste - Kim Van den Brempt pian | confettis | Scoop.it

Il y a un lien fascinant à faire entre l’esprit zen, qui a été très influential dans les milieux branchés US dans les années 60 à 80 et la musique contemporaine, de John Cage aux minimalistes.

Xavier Leton's insight:

Les musiques et textes issus de la tradition zen, sont mis en contexte narratif par Laurent de Sutter (scènes, anecdotes). Il donne à expérimenter au public un peu de ce goût du zen qui avait tant frappé et séduit John Cage & co, mais aussi de nombreux écrivains et poètes américains de la même génération - tel Allen Ginsberg et à la Beat Generation, par exemple.

Airtight Leeuw House Requires Almost No Energy for Heating

Airtight Leeuw House Requires Almost No Energy for Heating | confettis | Scoop.it
Belgian studio NU architectuuratelier designed Leeuw House, a compact energy-efficient home built to Passive House standards.
Xavier Leton's insight:

Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, a community located just outside Brussels. The striking design could be a nod to its progressive adoption of Passive House standards--the energy-efficient house was built with a tightly sealed facade that maximizes warmth from the sun and minimizes heat loss. Although the building's form mimics the shape of the region's traditional brick houses, the architects wrapped the compact house in a latticed pattern of overlapping fibre-cement tiles and bright green accents for a contemporary twist.

Disobedient Images | open! | confettis | Scoop.it

Marco Scotini is the curator of the ongoing Disobedience Archive project, a video station and discussion platform that focuses on the relationship between artistic practices and political action. In this text, Scotini focuses on the Autonomia movement of 1977 and the Italian underground filmmaker Alberto Grifi, who is considered a cinema pioneer who anticipated contemporary disobedience cinema. Scotini analyses Grifi’s film Festival of the Young Proletariat at Parco Lambro and offers his reflections on social disobedience in relation to mediatisation and representation

Xavier Leton's insight:

Autonomia and the Politics of Representation

The contemporary forms of social mobilisation breaking out everywhere across the globalised space have some things in common: the refusal of representation, new ways of political visualisation and the experimentation with forms of organisation that deviate from modern political tradition, a tradition that delegates power to representatives of the people and social classes.

From the 1999 protests in Seattle to the recent demonstrations of the many international Occupy movements, from Zapatista uprisings to the Arab and Turkish insurrections, there is an identical transformative tension (global, chaotic, plural) that has never stopped to act.
