Archiving work


October 24, 2014 - February 22, 2015

Center of Contemporary Art Faux Mouvement in Metz

Centre Pompidou - Metz (Metz)

The exhibition Archiving Work is orgnanized as part of the symposium Archives au Présent, until February 22nd, 2015 at the Contemporary Art Center Faux Mouvement in Metz

With new conditions imposed by "the recorded life", a life that cannot be separated from its recording and its real-time transmission, working with archives became necessary to most human practices. Thus the archiving "fever" that is spreading to contemporary arts is not surprising. Nonetheless it questions actors and observers of these practices. Is the "archive" about to become a new artistic genre, even a new medium, as ready-made and exhibitions were at the time? At the risk of bringing along new formalisms, as rent ready-made and exhibition did?
