Carte blanche to d.c.a - Module 1 in Palais de Tokyo / FIAC 2010
The Palais de Tokyo invites the d.c.a association, a network which federates 46 contemporary art centres in France, to occupy the Module 1 from 6 until 30 November 2008. The d.c.a art centres put forward artists’ films in order to compose three programmes, presented alternately in the Module.
d.c.a invited Andrea Bruciati (in partnership with AMACI, the Italian Contemporary Art Museums Association) and Bettina Steinbrügge to freely create two programmes from the selection of films put forward by art centres within the scope of FIAC CINEMA (at Palais de Tokyo on Friday October 24th 2008).
Andrea Bruciati, art critic and curator, is director of GC.AC in Monfalcone since 2002.
Bettina Steinbrügge, art critic and curator, is artistic director of the Galerie Andersen’s Contemporary in Berlin. She runned the Halle für Kunst Lüneburg between 2001 and 2008.
In addition to the “IV” programme by Andrea Bruciati and the “Fear and Desire" programme by Bettina Steinbrügge, the third programme, “From A to Y”, will present all the films put forward by art centres which are members of d.c.a. These three programmes reflect the diversity of contemporary video production, showing the wealth of the most recent artistic creation in France, supported by art centres and emphasising the contemporary nature of their choices.
