WELCOME

Welcome to my website – A SORT OF ARCHIVE – as curator, redactor, art writer and documentarian…
As this php system needs to be updated, I am currently working on a brand-new website. Nonetheless, the information contained here give some hints on my person and the projects I am/was working on…

For more information on my person, please, look at my short video presentation (English Version), or a longer and theoretical presentation in English, German and French on my use of videos, with extracts from Langmatt festival, filmed and edited by Peter Kadar.

PRESENTATION
How to present myself in a few words (…), especially if I do not want to embrace traditional categories, but rather open them to new form of transversality and create a network of common experiences.

What does it mean to be a curator, an art writer and/or a documentarian, nowadays?
The central question might be first, what is the meaning of contemporary art in the XXIst century. I could quote Boris Groys, who says in his book ‘In the Flow’, ‘(…) contemporary art became the medium for investigating the eventfulness of events — the different modes of immediate experience of the events, their relationship to documentation and archiving, the intellectual and emotional modes of our relationship to documentation.’ (…). Nonetheless should contemporary art only be a medium? Isn’t it as well a process showing the transformation and the evolution of our worlds and our planet? (…)

To be rational and pragmatic, I should maybe notify that I am multitasking and speak a few languages, mainly F/E/D.
