SYSTEM ECHOES

System Echoes is an exhibition program focusing on the uncertain, changing living world. The artists’ various approaches immerse us in current issues involving migration (Les Chants de l’Asphodèle, Mathias Benguigui and Agathe Kalfas), memory (Sauvegarde retrouvée 2.0, Jérôme Cortie; Cuba, Manuel Rivera-Ortiz), feminism (Les Marques, Elsa Leydier). Virtual and augmented reality (Au bord du réel, Jean-Christian Bourcart) and archives (AMC Seeds, Archives of Modern Conflicts ; Time Atlas, Niina Vatanen) shape a fresh vision and perception of the living world and the social relations resulting from it. These narratives express our fears through the imagination (D’ici, ça ne paraît pas si loin, LesAssociés)—or violence (American Mirror, Philip Montgomery). These visions explore the aspects of the individual, the solitude (Métropolis, Barbara Wolff), gender (Identité et masque, Anno Wilms), or eroticism (Behind Desire, Chaussee 36), in connection with the theme of Fotohaus, Persona. An interrelated system facing a multitude of questions today, including health (Sauver les corps, LesAssociés/ParisBerlin), ecological and political ones (Drop Out, Hoël Duret), asking questions about the future of humankind (Surviving Humanity, Alberto Giuliani).
