Urgent Talk 037: Artist Talk + Screening of Un Film Dramatique by Eric Baudelaire, Winner of The Marcel Duchamp Prize 2019
Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available
Film subtitles: Japanese and English
For this edition of Urgent Talk, we invite Eric Baudelaire, the recipient of the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2019, to screen his most recent film Un Film Dramatique (2019) and to deliver a presentation about his practice.
Eric Baudelaire is a visual artist and filmmaker who investigates how images of contemporary and historical events, such as war, catastrophe, and conflict are manufactured and consumed in our society. Rejecting journalistic expressions that are dramatic and sensational, many of his works carefully observe rural and metropolitan scenes to expose the power structures and effects of violence that are hidden in these ordinary landscapes. For Un Film Dramatique, Baudelaire regularly met with students from the film group at Dora Maar Middle School in the suburbs of Paris over the course of four years, working collaboratively to document their lives as they matured into young adults. What is evoked subtlety through these children’s interaction with one another, taking place inside and outside the school, is their struggle to define their identity under the country’s unstable political climate.
* The program screens a shortened special version of the film.
