SALLE SORMIOU - The challenges of international mobility: the circulation of views. Programmes dedicated to international mobility are powerful professional levers for artists and cultural operators. Moreover, they are the vectors of a displacement of representations and subjectivities, of a circulation of images and narratives that create other relationships in the Euro-Mediterranean space. They help to displace geo-political hierarchies and open up other perspectives for dialogue and cooperation in the present.


Partners : the Roberto Cimetta Fund, Institut du Monde Arabe, Institut Français « nafas», and the emergency programme in support of the Lebanese art scene. 


Speakers :

  • Amir Youssef Tadros, artist - digital art

  • Petra Serhal, artist

  • Rachid Djaidani, writer, director, scriptwriter and actor (to be confirmed)
