Cartes blanches

Video art, cinema or television professionals will introduce programmes on the theme of the Social Body, which gives the opportunity to relate and question audiovisual productions picturing a tension between the individual and collective identity. It seems that more works refer to a social group united around cultural, sexual, ethnic, etc. values. To understand this «I» becoming a «we», and how the individual is manifested through this collective identity. This is an opportunity to discover known or unknown master-pieces that only specialists could have dug out.
