David Diao, Glissement, 1984

Meeting with the authors Elitza Dulguerova, Alexander Schellow and Paul Sztulman following the release of the review  Le Genre humain « Les artistes font des histoires » (éditions du Seuil) ; hosted by Catherine Perret, Jean-Philippe Antoine, Marcella Lista and Dominique Figarella.

There are a lot of contemporary artistic approaches where the artist figure stand by the historian, the archivist. Some of them reach the missing things even the wastes of an history of representation in which artists are the chroniclers, the narrators or poets. Stories take shape "reinvest the document, archive, memorial or museum categories".

During this evening, Catherine Perret, philosopher, and Jean-Philippe Antoine, artist and theorician, both lecturers in aesthetic and arts theory at the Université Paris 8 and publication directors of the review come back on the work accomplished for this review number. They join the editorial board as well as Marcella Lista, art historian, head of the Louvre museum programme and Dominique Figarella, painter. They will discuss among other things of Mark Lewis works, of the quartet Kunst which reproduces the danced move from the literary, musical and choreographic polyphony, of Chris Ware's investigations on the relationship between graphic novels and modern art, questioning the dichotomy between low and high art.

Authors : Jean-Philippe Antoine, Jean-François Chevrier, Elitza Dulguerova, Lef Elgreen, Matthew Day Jackson, Mark Lewis, Morad Montazami, Olivier Mosset, Catherine Perret, Alexander Schellow, Paul Stulzman and Christophe Wavelet
