David Fathi & Sebastien Thon, artists
A critical initiation to Machine Learning imagery. Beware, it is a free workshop for only 10 selected participants. If interested, please send us a pm explaining why you want to participate.
Never as at the dawn of the metaverses we can measure the power of images to create worlds that defy the concept of reality. Once they exist, whatever their roots, they are. What are the opportunities, dangers and responsibilities in our ability to draw the contours of our next continent?

Friday 8th, 4.30-5.30 pm
A celebration of togetherness
Mathieu Farcy, artista
A performative presentation of the newly printed “Je n’habitais pas mon visage”
“When I started being a photographer, I told people that I was working “on” a subject : “on” the tourists, “on” the former workers of Goodyear plant. Yet, something was wrong, I felt a discomfort. During the writing of “I wasn’t living in my face”, I understood : I wanted to work “with”, not “on”. It freed me, opened a bunch of new questionings, allowing me to be more horizontal in my work.”


6-7 pm
A celebration of togetherness
Romy Alizée, Artist , Bérangère Fromont, Artist & Laura Lafon, Artist and Art Director of Gaze Magazine
Gaze is much more than a magazine. It is a printed space where to celebrate and foster the female gaze
The team  proposes a reading and a warm discussion about the means to be used to reach the very much needed inclusivity.

7-8 pm
Gather and share
Jean-Marc Caimi and Valentina Piccinni
Fastidiosa book presentation

Saturday 9th, 4 pm
Gather and share
Cannibal Capitalism
Rob Hornstra, documentary photographer
Presentation of the last chapter of the ten-years project, The Europeans: the book Notre Maison Ancestrale and the free newspaper L’Argent Gagne Toujours.

Our Ancestral Home is the story of a stunningly beautiful region of Europe where the locals cherish their traditions, speak a mysterious language and pass down the picturesque houses and farms from generation to generation. That’s how it has always been. But tourists and wealthy urbanites have now discovered the region, and the original inhabitants are succumbing to the lure of the exorbitant amounts that outsiders are willing to pay for a rural retreat. “We have sold our country,” activists lament. But who can resist the laws of capitalism?”
Be sure to get a copy of the frantic activist free newspaper with the title Money Always Wins.

5.30 pm
The power of the archive
Cannibal Capitalism
Juliette George, artist
“Talking about economics is important since it has been preempted by economists, these experts whose word is golden. However, the term economy is broader. Contraction of the terms oikos (the house, the domain, the property, the family etc.) and némein which means to distribute, to share, the economy is an administration of goods, a fact of possession but also the way in which this possession is shared, a way of relating. The economy lives to be narrated.”
George will introduce us to her methodology of surveillance and observation of the ever evolving living archive produced through social networking online.
