Video spotResonance with the KICKS Festival!
As an initiation for the year focusing on the presentation of the Collections of the Hainaut Province and BPS22, the Museum offers a selection of videos allowing discovering many different facets of this heritage intrinsically linked with society issues.
In parallel, the BPS22 associates itself to the Festival KICKS ! - Regard(s) sur la jeunesse(glance(s) at youth) and proposes a zoom on the video by Emmanuel Van der Auwera, A certain amount of clarity (2014). This work unveils the reactions of adolescents when they are faced with an extremely violent scene broadcast on the Internet. The artist approaches the perverseness of this sort of phenomenon by posing a reflection around notions of identity, manipulation and conflicts that perfectly echo the preoccupations of this fifth edition of the KICKS !
The Mediation department will organise debates and workshops around the questions raised by the video.
KICKS! is a project of L' Ancre - Charleroi in partnership with BPS22.
