Fragments as a Tool – Memory and Archeology in Contemporary art

This event, curated by Lorenzo Bruni, is a cross-reading about one of the latest trends in contemporary art: the use of archives and the archaeological method adopted by artists to reflect not on the identity of a society of the past, but on our present.

Films by artists Maria Thereza Alves, Rossella Biscotti, Uriel Orlow, and Ulla Von Brandenburg will be screened in order to create a moment of encounter, informal debate, and reflection upon this theme.

The Position of the Researcher – Undisciplined meetings: Arts and Social Sciences | Mucem, Marseilles

8-10. November, 2017 | Mucem Auditorium
Free admission, registration recommended: i2mp@mucem.org

The ethical or political positioning of a researcher is built through his or her working methods. In the human and social sciences, these methods are so many ways of doing within discourse. We start from the common materiality of the research work – the confrontation with the materials, the archives and the testimonies – to create a dialogue around the gestures of the collection, the methods of investigation, the forms of writing and exposure.

Participants include artists Kapwani Kiwanga, Mathieu K. Abonnenc, Vincent Meessen, and Uriel Orlow.

Mondialisation de la Santé | Le Polygone Etoilé

An interdisciplinary thematic school of research entitled ”  Globalization of health: knowledge, practices and policies ” will take place in Marseille from 23 to 27 October 2017.

The term global health is now used by very diverse actors, from universities to industry to foundations, its polysemy is therefore equal to its ubiquity insofar as it denotes both the ” emergence, especially in the United States and Great Britain, of a real field of research and action than processes of the flow of goods, capital, people, knowledge and policies, all of which long term, even though the last thirty years have introduced enough breakthroughs so that we can talk about a new regime of the inter- and transnational government of health.

A screening of the Mafavuke film cycle will take place on 26 October at Le Polygone Etoilé cinema. The films include: The Crown against Mafavuke; Imbibizo Ka Mavafuke (Mafavuke’s Tribunal); Muthi, and will be shown in the presence of the director, Uriel Orlow

Tate Modern, London | A Reflection on Revolution in Egypt

Céline Condorelli and Uriel Orlow present: Straub / Huillet – Too Early, Too Late

Momentous events have been unfolding in the Middle East, pressing for meaningful ways to engage with what is happening in Egypt. As instantaneous newsfeeds pull us in different directions, there is a need to counter the speed of media coverage overwhelming our present. This event features a screening of the rarely seen film Too Early, Too Late (Trop tôt, trop tard) by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, as a means to open up and reflect on the current moment. The screening is followed by voices of artists and curators from Egypt.
