Created in 2013 and supported by the Labex Arts-H2H and the University Paris 8, the BnF, Centre Pompidou and the CNC, the research program "CinePol68" ("Cinema/video, art and politics in France since 1968: devices, archives, digital") is evaluating three years of research. All the common work between researchers, artists, curators, programmers and witnesses allowed to open a research field yet little explored in the history and aesthetics of "cine-devices".
These two days intend to reconsider the scientific and patrimonial issues that emerged from this collective research, while reaffirming a pluridisciplinary methodology that combines archives and digital tools, to contextualize audiovisual documents in network
After a general introduction including works on the "vidéo des premiers temps", the symposium will go through the diversity of fields involved and created new links between them, from rare films excerpts and other collected sources.
Monographic approaches from filmmakers and video makers committed to artistic, political and social artistic practices – Hélène Châtelain, Léa Lublin, Patrick Prado, Lionel Soukaz… – will be thus combined to methodological sessions focused on social and historical case studies : audiovisual archives of the University Paris 8, of the Experimental Academic Center of Vincennes and its moving to Saint-Denis, or feminist appropriations of the camera.
