Sunday, October 23rd | Art and diplomacy

La FIAC et Council (Gregory Castéra et Sandra Terdjman), réunissent plusieurs projets artistiques autour d’une question : Comment l’art peut-il avoir des effets diplomatiques ? Qu’ils agissent directement au sein d’institutions politiques internationales, qu’ils inventent des situations pour réunir des acteurs aux perspectives divergentes, qu’ils conçoivent des formats pour la production et la circulation d’idées, ou qu’ils examinent l’éthique de l’influence et des négociations, les projets invités utilisent la diplomatie comme un champ d’action.
In collaboration with FIAC, Council (Gregory Castéra and Sandra Terdjman) brings together a number of art projects around a single question: how can art influence diplomacy? Whether they act directly within international political institutions, whether they invent situations to bring together stakeholders with divergent perspectives, whether they devise formats for the production and circulation of ideas, or whether they theorize the ethics of influence and negotiations, the projects presented use diplomacy as a field of action.

Based on the stories of their experiences and their opinions, the role and political usefulness of art will be discussed, together with the consequences of these approaches on the experience of artworks, on art institutions and on political cultures. Created in 2013 by Grégory Castéra and Sandra Terdjman, Council is a curatorial platform dedicated to societal issues analyzed by civilians. Projects engage collaborations between artists, scientists and other people concerned by the problem.
With the support of the French Institute
