It associates la métonymie (digital art, with Ikse Maître) and La Transplanisphère (with Bruno Freyssinet) since September 2016.

Le sas aims to develop a culture of science-art-society projects, to promote a scientific and artistic culture and to accompany art-science projects. It revolves around art-science creations, art-science developments and art-science mediations. It opens up places for research and exchange within the academic research between artists and scientists.

What links a shiny bottle of Champagne, a leaking rice bag, a cobbled taximeter and a worn-out football shoe? They all had a role to play in a little story of corruption.

 

Corruption Objectified is the product of a joyful cooperation between the Integrity Forum team, La Transplanisphere and a team of Sciences Po Students. They choosed to explore the integrity topic in an different way, collecting symbolic objects of corruption associated to their stories. The result is a promenade offered to the audience, a concrete introduction to the multiple dimensions of a stake that may appear (sometimes) so difficult to fathom and so complicated to get to grips with.

 

What is, according to you, the most accurate object of corruption? Will you find it somewhere among the collection visible here? Please let us know, as we expect suggestions for the next experience!

The project

The exhibition Corruption Objectified is a first step of a future european project that wishes to question corruption: 50 Shades of Integrity. Co designed by 7 organisations coming from different backgrounds, the experience will associate artistic and civic approaches. It will also be based on the public participation and involvement. The partners are convinced that artists and experts have a dialog to initiate in order to bring creativity in the public debate on the corruption stakes.

If you want to know more about this project, or if you want to host Corruption Objectified in your own event please contact La Transplanisphère

50 Shades of integrity

Visuel corruption_1This project is in progress. Expected period of activity : Sept 2016- Dec. 2017

Corruption Objectified, installation on objects of corruption, OECD Integrity Forum 2016, April19-20 2016

The fight against corruption, also called protection of integrity, is significantly active nowadays. European institutions as well as numerous governmental and non-governmental organisations have given priority to that matter. Lately, we have witnessed the emergence of NGO’s  condemning corruption, often with the help of the media. Several academic projects have also arisen in Europe. Even big companies have elaborated charters and trained their employees, following resounding corruption scandals. Though, a link is missing among these initiatives:  citizen and transversal actions directly addressing Europeans. An experience giving them the chance to inform themselves of the issue and react in a creative way.
When we discussed with actors involved in fighting against corruption, they share with us that they often witness a debate between experts. It is true that some cases are released through the media, but they often trigger fruitless reactions: a confusing mix of anger and mistrust towards countries, a feeling of a skewed process in the European societies’ social contract.
How could we trigger a more positive, active and citizen-based approach towards stakes linked to corruption and integrity? How could we bring a constructive and creative answer which can be spread among a lot of people?
This is precisely the approach of “50 Shades of Integrity”. Based on a hitherto unseen European partnership, composed of organizations of various origins and sizes, the project intends to create a field of expression so citizens should be able to share their views and be creative when discussing the Corruption topic. Through debates and artistic outputs, the project will bring a fresh perspective to these questions. It will allow citizens from different countries, generations and social backgrounds to gather and discuss. Together, we will try to bring an answer to this major concern through propositions that will hopefully contribute to the stimulation of the European Cohesion.

Here We Are

Here we are wishes to explore the relation between europeans and the refugees coming recently from area in conflict (Sub-Saharan Africa, Horn of Africa, Syria, Irak and Afghanistan). The project will provoke an artistic and civic space for an alternative dialog based on creating “common”.

logo here we areHere we are will be innovative in designing a framework that will escape from a repeated pattern of goodwill versus intolerance. Beyond mutual understanding, the project focuses on “learning together” and “creating together” as an example of a possible future.

This dialogue uses vocabulary ranging from arts, craft, media, technology and sciences. And from all communities involved, Here we are will gather and collaborate with artists, teachers, researchers, community leaders, public figures, students and youth groups.

The partners organisations involved will be based in the different countries associated to the project. Together, they will generate a trans sectoral consortium made of art companies, NGOs, educational organisations, private foundations, public entities and media. The experience will be shared to the european audience through a web platform linked to the social networks. This platform will also remain after the project as a reference for refugees and migrants projects in Europe.

As a final objective, this project wishes to engage participants and through them all the communities involved to reconsider their relation to the Other and create a dynamic space for dialog, learning and creation. The initiators wish to explore alternative pathways that will be shared with a large european audience. As a result, we hope that Here we are will contribute to a more positive approach on what the refugee crisis may actually trigger for Europe. Perhaps new dynamics in our creativity and a higher stimulation for building common addressed to the european project in progress.

Rec>ON (reconciliation)

 

European artistic and civic cooperation project between Turkey, Armenia, Germany and France

How to give an artistic dimension to a very sensitive european debate, usually handled by the politic field?
How to allow citizens from 4 different countries to appropriate together the reconciliation question and transform it in an artistic piece, opened an stimulating?

The project aim is to associate artists, young people and representatives of the civil society from Armenia, Germany, Turkey and France. They operate a common reflection through a multidisciplinary stage performance, associated with actions involving the public (workshops, debates, meetings…). With this common experience, citizens from Europe and Europe frontiers try to cast off geographical, historical or psychological limits to question together the reconciliation idea.

desc_photocompo9

The project is twofold:

• a play involving artists symbolizing all four countries will be written, staged and performed, using not only theatre but music and video art. The play is written during the process, using the four languages. It is rehearsed then performed in Yerevan (Armenia), before touring in the three other partner countries.
• Each stage of the project is linked to workshops, personalities interviews and a public debate. Bridges are built up between the performers and the audience partly through workshops under the supervision of the artists involved. In order to create a dialogue with a wider audience, the project works with partners in each country, such as high schools and universities.
• The two sides of the project are constantly intersect during its creation. A documentary film is shot to follow the project different stages.

Making a shared future possible The first half of the twentieth century witnessed Europe’s involvement in the most destructive wars in history. But the second half has shown us a new vision, with for the first time the creation of a community of countries capable of exchanging ideas, building new bonds and moving forward together. One of the key words of this process was reconciliation. This reconciliation involved countries barely recovering from the war, still torn asunder by civil conflicts: it was about accepting the other and our differences to create a better future. The Franco-German reconciliation is often thought of as the basis of the European Union, and today’s generation of Europeans take it for granted. Need we however remind ourselves just how difficult to achieve such an alliance was? All throughout the process, citizens took the initiative and created new cooperations, especially in the domains of education and culture.

About The Descendants / Rec>ON webdoc par brunofrey

These actions became catalysers for innovating ways of working together, often independently from political decisions. Since its creation, every time the European Union integrates a new country, the question of how the different nations composing the Union interact becomes essential. In the case of the integration of Turkey in the Union, relations between France and Turkey, Germany and Turkey, are at the heart of a heated debate, since these countries share a rich political, cultural and migratory history. By extension, the question of the relationship of Turkey to its neighbours must be asked, and most notably with Armenia, since reconciliation between these two countries has just been launched. It is still an extremely complex situation, since the political and economic goals are very important, but it has never evolved as much as during these last few years.

Turkey, Armenia, Germany, and France: four countries with complex, special bonds; four points of view on the idea of reconciliation, on the means necessary to protect or provoke it; a common realisation that without reconciliation, no shared future is possible. It is not necessary to always have the same point of view ; no one can prevent us from becoming more intelligent.

World Crisis Theatre

crisis-words-large
World Crisis Theatre proposes a meeting of professional artists and young people coming from different countries in Europe. Their common goal is the creation of two plays dealing with the 2008 financial crisis and the present one, together with organising public activities.

The project is inspired the The Power of Yes, a play by British playwright David Hare. The Power of Yes was an investigative theatrical documentary at the heart of the financial crisis as it was lived in Great Britain. The global 2008 crisis has become a sort of turning one and by turn the European citizens are either victims or judges of their neighbours’ crisis. It is one of the project’s strength to enable the confrontation of the points of view coming from the different participating countries, a crossed vision between the peoples. Continue reading
