A Collective exhibition, "Worlds of Networks" brings together some sixty artists, architects and designers who question the place of the network in our societies innervated by social networks and the dematerialization of the network itself. More than ever, in the internet age, the network is at the heart of technological change and societal issues: surveillance, atomization of the individual, actor-network, network of living things.

Has everything today become a network? From the birth of the information society in the postwar years, to the ubiquity of the global network with the Internet, the network is weaving its web everywhere, in space and time. At the heart of societal issues and artistic changes, it continues to multiply. At a time of environmental crisis, the first network is also that of living things, where humans give themselves in coexistence with other species. Around a hundred works, from the 1940s to the present day, are exhibited here, including several especially designed for the exhibition: some reactivate missing networks, such as the "Minitel" device, while others are connected in real time to the Internet, cryptocurrency networks, as well as social media platforms, such as Twitter.

« Făbrĭca »

A virtual musical experiencepremiere 2022
in the "Réseaux-Mondes" exhibition

Făbrĭca is a virtual musical environment in which a 3D graphic universe connects musical development and movement in space. The public is invited to explore it freely: by tracing their own path, each person composes the relationships between the sound elements and the visual architectures and in this way determines the evolution of the musical narrative.
