Hors les Murs

Conferences
Valeur ajoutée (Added value)
For FIAC, Something you should know: Artists and producers for FIAC is presenting three talks dedicated to questions pertaining to value and evaluation, credit and money. Five guests—social science researchers, philosophers and historians—will present the current state of their research and theoretical discourse on these critically relevant themes.

Art and Ecology: a question of taste or science?
In the framework of the collaboration with the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle, FIAC is organising a cycle of three roundtable talks based on the theme "Art and Ecology: a question of taste or science?" in association with COAL (Coalition pour l'Art et le Développement Durable). Each roundtable discussion presents a dialogue between an artist, a scientist and a philosopher, around the theme of the potential interactions between art and science.
