"Vrai ou Faux" - "Falsch oder Richtig"
Ein EU-Projekt in Kooperation mit dem Atelier Reflexe / Montreuil
“True or False? The border between is neither a static axis, nor one that is vertical and vertiginous, which art has always known how to defy. True and False intertwine in this never-ending horizontality, within a shadow-less landscape where no one and nothing stand in the way of reality.”
Whether it concerns aesthetics, culture, the environment, the media, the economy, social behaviours…the usefulness, perception, role and importance of ‘true’ and ‘false’ are changing. How does the concept ‘true or false’ manifest itself in the daily lives of European citizens? What becomes its role in Europe faced with global eco/ socio/cultural stakes? What is the frontier of ‘true’ and ‘false’ in the problematic discussion about the tangible acculturation and the diversity of cultures in Europe?
This project, supported by European Commission, combines, according to an original, a group of confirmed European artists, young artists stemming from an international program of workshops and European partners, to answer these questions through an édition and a traveling show .
