Visual artist Lorenzo Lazzari used the mobility support for a series of weekly network meetings between himself and the curators Sibylle de Laurens, Pascaline Morincôme (Treize), Enrico Camporesi (Centre Pompidou) for discussions on the legacy of Videofreex, a collective active between 1969 (group establishment date) and 1977 (retrospective at Anthology Film Archives). Videofreex was a collective that used video to create independent information, with the authorial reappropriation of the tool by the interviewed communities themselves so that they ceased to be a mere documentable object and became an agent subject of their representations. This was the model to which European video collectives in the 70s and 80s referred. The weekly discussions were conducted both at Treize and at Pompidou. The outcome of the meetings, the extracts from the video-bus archive, will be published and presented after the mobility period in the context of the second edition of the Master in Moving Images Arts at Iuav (Venice).
We have decided to publish the output of the talks during the first semester of 2020. For now, we didn’t communicate about the project because we are waiting to define the book target, publishing house, and design.
