CRISIS, CRISIS of CULTURE, CULTURE OF CRISIS
and art in all that?

It doesn’t escape anyone that the crisis is here for the long haul: this is being drummed into us throughout the media landscape.
And to make use of this argument as an alibi to utilize budgets allotted to culture as a “value adjustment”. We could deride this simplistic view. But to look at it more closely, this position is commonly accepted by all of the decision-makers. Even though, in spite of the crisis, culture has never been such a “safe investment” to continue in the language that has been laying down the law for several decades. Never, indeed, have we had to deal with such demand, never have we had to answer the increasing and varied needs of collaboration, of presentation, of reception, of support for cultural projects.
So, for this 27th edition of Vidéoformes, let’s dive in again, let’s go in search of another dimension, another way of thinking, another sensibility.
And let’s enlighten ourselves, by remembering the words of Dziga Vertov (spinning top!) so that the lines move at last:
“I am kino-eye.
I am a mechanical eye.
Now and forever, I free myself from human immobility. I am in constant motion…
This is where we work, we the masters of vision, the organizers of visible life (..), masters of word and sound, the most skillful editors of life.”
