Séminaire art video à la BNF avec Fred Forest

2014 Fred Forest séminaire vidéo de la BNF

Une fois de plus Fred Forest et obligé de jouer des coudes pour faire valoir ses droits les plus reconnus et les plus élémentaires. Il apprend d’une façon toute incidente qu’un séminaire sous la direction de François Bovier consacré aux pionniers de la vidéo est programmé à la BNF dont il est exclu une fois de plus... Il se fait réintégrer de force parmi les artistes invités et propose pour son intervention la vidéo suivante. L’organisateur du séminaire de nationalité Suisse est un universitaire du nom de François Bovier qui connaît bien pourtant son existence puisque ayant at eu besoin d’informations au sujet de René Berger il avait eu déjà recours à lui… Les Suisses universitaires ou pas que j’ai bien connus dans le passé nous avaient habitués à bien plus de rigueur…

2014 Fred Forest BNF video seminar

Once again Fred Forest and forced to jostle to assert his most recognized and basic rights. He learns incidentally that a seminar under the direction of François Bovié AND ALAIN CAROU OF THE BNF devoted to the "pioneers" of video is scheduled at the BNF, from which he is once again automatically excluded... While Carou is not unaware of his existence, since he had been dispatched on a mission to his studio on two successive occasions by Bruno Racine... He is therefore forcibly reintegrated here among the invited artists... and proposes for his intervention the video of a critical performance produced at the Center Pompidou on the occasion of another exclusion! The organizer of the seminar of Swiss nationality who manages the session is an academic answering to the name of François Bovier who nevertheless knows his existence well since having needed information about René Berger he had already had recourse to him… The Swiss , academics or not, whom the artist knew well in the past, we had under the leadership of René Berger accustomed to much more rigor and ethics... You only have to see how MAMCO works today to to account for the same errors of those, who practice the elite inter-self in a frenzy... Out of pure mercy, we will not mention here the name of its current Director in 2023...

LONG BIOGRAPHY OF FRED FOREST

Fred Forest has a special place in contemporary art. Both by his personality and by his pioneering practices which mark his work. He is mainly known today for having used one by one most of the communication media that have appeared over the last fifty years. He is co-founder of three artistic movements: those of sociological art, the aesthetics of communication and ethics in art.
