Le Présent de nos savoirs #6, #7 et #8 - January 10, February 1 and 22, 2017 Three new "Present of our knowledge" workshops were organised to prepare for the third edition of the Editathon Art+Feminisms/Paris in March. The first workshop was held on January 10, led by Tarek Lakhrissi and Kvardek Du to introduce the concept of disidentification as coined by critic and historian José Esteban Muñoz, specialised in queers of color.    The second workshop was held February 1. Led by artist Rébecca Chaillon, it explored the practice of transition in disidentifications.  For the third and final workshop on Februrary 22, artist Paul Maheke guided the participants through another dimension of disidentification, namely ignorance.

"Anarchéologie", on view until September 11 at the Centre Pompidou   This exhibit gathers pieces by artists Oliver Laric, Jumana Manna and Christodoulos Panayiotou with the support of Lafayette Anticipations – Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette. The exhibition title is borrowed from an expression coined by Michel Foucault; it announces an epistemological erosion and the inevitable alliance between technological innovations and ancient artistic practices.

WATCH AND SHARE

Mutant Stage 9 by Lucas Dhont with Jan Martens

"The film is the result of this physical and dynamic interaction between a construction site, a dancer, a drummer and a camera." - Lukas Dhont and Jan Martens

Let yourself be entranced by the exciting rhythm of this ninth episode of the Mutant Stage produced by Lafayette Anticipations - Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette.


Mutant Stage
Mutant Stage is a series of choreographed short films produced by Lafayette Anticipations - Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette during the renovation of its building.
Throughout the works, and until the public opening of Lafayette Anticipations in 2018, the building at 9 rue du Plâtre will be the object of an investigation into its own mutation, as the evolving architecture is measured over the months through the in situ encounters of directors and performers.

In partnership with MK2, Lafayette Anticipations – Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette brings Mutant Stage to Parisian movie theatres from January to October 2017.

Mutant Stage 8, by Xavier Veilhan, featuring Marie-Agnès Gillot and Dimitri Chamblas

Between the outstretched arms of a basket crane, Marie-Agnès Gillot and Dimitri Chamblas dance gently in front of Xavier Veilhan's low-tech camera in the 9 rue du Plâtre construction site, still void of its future glass tower. Exclusively filmed on the site’s patio, this eighth episode of the Mutant Stage series sets free from the piece’s original choreography, this time revealing itself through a low definition image and crystal-clear music composed by Jonathan Fitoussi.


Third edition of the Editathon Art+Feminisms Paris, held at the Archives nationales on March 4 and 5 2017

This third edition of the Editathon Art+Feminisms Paris was produced by Lafayette Anticipations - Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette. It explored the theme of disidentification as coined by José Esteban Muñoz (1967-2013) and featured artist Wu Tsang.
