REPLAY – ce que l’art veut aux archives

Round table at ISELP, Brussels
Yvan Flasse, Johan Grimonprez, Vincent Meessen and Giovanna Zapperi.

In the framework of BAFF (Brussels Art Film Festival), co-organized by Fonds Henri Storck
Saturday November 19 from 2.30 until 4.30 PM.


For more than twenty years, archives have become a focal point in a variety of artistic practices: textual archives as well as photographic, and film archives. Anonymous or authored, these documents go through different sorts of uses : critical investigation, narrative appropriation, and fictionalization. Their common thread : ways to  perform memory in the present. Vincent Meessen has recently participated to Giovanni Zapperi’s collective book “L’avenir du passé (The becoming of the past) ” whose content they will discuss during their talk.
