Thematic:

GROWTH

8th, 9th and 10th of November 2019.

In corporation with Wien Modern and Ensemble Kontrapunkte

In collaboration with “Les Lunes Bergers”, a publishing house of books-objects that offers a stage space to take away. The totem object in limited series represents in a device of reading-manipulation the heart of each problematic dealt by Salon Souterrain.

For this edition the thematic is : GROWTH

«We live in a highly academic age, although we ritually deny it. At present we have almost completely domesticated art, whether private or public, and created an art simply to serve our most ordinary needs {…} visual art has become a kind of industrialized agriculture , mechanical harvesting of popular seeds of high culture».

Get out, Stay away, Come back, Richard Nonas

The cultural displaced by the notions of disposable and interchangeable, and subject to issues of mass production, opposes the rare, the precious, and more, the persistent. The entertainment provided by the cultural object as an object of consumption, efficient and fast is to be compared to the effects of sugar, quickly digested, ephemeral satisfaction, but powerful. Now, without residual, the emptiness that follows, pushes to repetition, re-gurging again to avoid the lack of this excitement, to the point of obesity.

Thus, how can we find this essential nucleus, perhaps that which is of the order of the corpse, as if to find a response of opposition to the speed and erasure of the persistent, in a superabundance of indistinctly talkative signs? 

« What is meant by “more” reduces the essential » ( E. Tambwé).

 

Should we go back and meet the founding myths, or should we, in the manner of an archaeologist keep leftovers of a method of production?
