Public Program of Briser la Glace

The public program for the exhibition Briser la Glace features talks, discussions, workshops, screenings and performances that will help viewers deepen their immersion into the exhibition itself. The functional spaces presented by the display of the show will be exploited and activated by the several guests.

One of the main goal is to create a link between actors coming from the international art scene with local and cultural practices.

Most of the events take place in the amphitheater, which is conceived to connect the two main spaces of the MAGASIN (la Rue and the galleries), but also within the several environments of the show. The public program is conceived as an extension and a continuous bringing up to date of the exhibition itself.

Nicholas Mirzoeff, An Introduction to Visual Culture

An Introduction to Visual Culture provides a wide-ranging introduction to the now established interdisciplinary field of visual culture.

Mapping a global history and theory of visual culture, An Introduction to Visual Culture asks how and why visual media have become so central to everyday life. This new, completely updated second edition has been adapted to match the challenges of interpreting globalization since the publication of the first edition a decade ago.

In this innovative, thoroughly revised and extended edition, Nicholas Mirzoeff explores:

-An extensive range of visual forms from painting, sculpture, and photography to television, cinema, and the Internet.
-The centrality of ‘race’ and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and the body in shaping visual culture.
-The importance of images of natural disaster and conflict, such as Hurricane Katrina and the ongoing war in Iraq.

ArchDaily Interviews: Saskia Sassen

Sociologist Saskia Sassen’s researches and writes about the social, economic and political dimensions of globalization, immigration, and networked technologies in cities around the globe. Her books and writings—published in over sixteen languages—have sustained the interests of architects and planners who seek to better understand the city via the systemic conditions that find expression in the reality of urban space.

Les Nouveaux Commanditaires

While artists and their artworks have taken on all their responsibilities to the extent that they have become paragons of the Modernist ambition, society has turned instead to artworks from the past by giving heritage more importance than it has ever had in history. Citizens remain absent and silent in art. They seem satisfied with anonymous relations with artists and limit artworks to having a role within a heritage that is managed by markets and institutions whose criteria and values could not stem from a political, let alone artistic project.

In order to give a voice to these great absentees and enable them to finally play a role, the actions of the Nouveaux Commanditaires take place on the art scene without walls. This can occur anywhere and is open to those who wish to take on a responsibility as an active player. In these situations, the citizen becomes an equal to the artist and acquires the authority to publicly express a need to create as well as to assess what is produced in the name of art. This mode of action has long gone beyond a mere declaration of intention, it is a tangible reality with hundreds of accomplished artworks. These reflect and demonstrate the fact that both citizens and artists have the intelligence and the courage necessary to highlight contemporary cultural necessities and act in consequence.

Theaster Gates

Theaster Gates, a potter by training and a social activist by calling, wanted to do something about the sorry state of his neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. So he did, transforming abandoned buildings to create community hubs that connect and inspire those who still live there (and draw in those who don’t). In this passionate talk, Gates describes his efforts to build a “miniature Versailles” in Chicago, and he shares his fervent belief that culture can be a catalyst for social transformation in any city, anywhere.

a.titolo is representative for Italy of the New Patrons programme (nouveaux Commanditaires) promoted by the Fondation de France, aimed at creating works of art commissioned directly by citizens for the places in which they live and work.

Paris is Burning

Paris Is Burning is a 1990 documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African American, Latino, gay and transgender communities involved in it. Many members of the ball culture community consider Paris Is Burning to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, as well as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, and gender in America.
