The Jeu de Paume inaugurates its first festival, under the curation of Béatrice Gross and the artistic advice of Katinka Bock. A festival of the image, but isn’t everything an image? Thinking about the image is also thinking about reality and the marvelous, the past and the moment, honesty and deception, the subjective and the political. Senses mingle with narratives, from Julien Bismuth to David Levine. Metaphors materialize with Nina Beier. The surprising emerges from the waste with Diane Severin Nguyen. Research opens the way to a truth forgotten in the images of history with Euridice Zaituna Kala. Entitled “Fata Morgana,” evoking a combination of mirages, the program thus summons the image beyond photography and film, which it extends by questioning its possibilities of existence.
