Carte blanche to d.c.a - Module 1 in Palais de Tokyo / Program

« IV »


Program by Andrea Bruciati

As Aristotle previously observed in Book IV of Poetics, “homo aestheticus”, through creating an image of another world for pleasure, another way of showing things, changes his own reality as much as the reality which is external to him. Thus created, this super-reality becomes the outpost for speculations, in which the elusive dimension of the image forms the basis for a new ontology of representation.

With Roberto Cuoghi, Simona Denicolai et Ivo Provoost, Julien Prévieux, Markus Schinwald.




Program by Bettina Steinbrügge

One of the characteristic traits of post-modern society is the re-expression of words via visual means. We are party to the replacement of symbolism by the imagination or pretence. If the imagination is really replacing symbolism, then what is the nature of our narratives today?
The question should actually be: how do we narrate these narratives?
All the works presented in this programme are linked to one another by the fact that the representation is open to doubt. Memory, vision and identity are fragmented as a result. Nothing can be assumed real any longer, which is particularly the case for the individuals present in this programme. Thus they appear not only as searching for an elusive reality but also searching for themselves.

With Mounir Fatmi, Arnaud Maguet, Alice Anderson, Antoinette Ohannessian, Emre Hüner, Gail Pickering, Markus Schinwald, Bettina Hutschek.
