26th INSTANTS VIDEO: 50 YEARS OF VIDEO ART

A CONCERN FOR HOSPITALITY

For the 26th INSTANTS VIDEO: 50 YEARS OF VIDEO ART IN MARSEILLES
A CONCERN FOR HOSPITALITY Having chosen as subtitle for the celebration of 50 years of video arts (1963 / 2013), Marc Mercier, Naïk M’simli and the Instants Vidéo team say:

“Video art was invented by the children of the 2nd World War and it is the contemporary art of Mediterranean revolutions and the Greek tragedy”
we received the support of the poet Alfred de Musset.

Then came upon a world in ruins an anxious youth." (The Confession of a Child of the Century, 1836)

Between November 7th to 11th, will be welcomed artists and cultural actors from Maghreb, Middle East, Asia, Americas, Europe...

We inscribe our approach in a tradition of hospitality that finds its roots in the mists of time. In Iliad and the Odyssey, Homer insists on the fact that when a stranger lands in a city, the rule is to give him bed and board before asking about his identity and the reasons of his visit. For sure, We inscribe our approach in a tradition of hospitality that finds its roots in the the mists of time.
In Iliad and the Odyssey, Homer insists on the fact that when a stranger lands in a city, the rule is to give him bed and board before asking about his identity and the reasons of his visit. For sure, there is a reason why the word Xenos means at once the stranger and the host.
We declared that for one week Marseilles will be the “world capital of video arts” to confirm our determination for a policy of total hospitality. We demand that Europe welcomes all the miseries of the world, the thousands of Syrians who are running away from the horrors of war, the thousands of Africans who are risking their life off the coasts of all the Mediterranean Lampedusas, the ROMs, the young Kosovan fifteen years old girls grabbed when leaving the Republic schools.
Hospitality, our sweet concern !
