A mental cartography around our personal questions about the Urban Scénos project, and the possibility to see many documents about the projects who were developed by artists during the residencies between 2002 and 2010. The questions, we call them « Dark zone? », a way to sketch around the shadows wich are part of the project. It came from an intuition, during the exhibition at Basel ArtFair 2009, the wall we made there, the network we were sketching, was maybe too didactic. In the Maillon, we stage a space of questions and a network; network also as a way to go over the cheavages around Europ/Africa. Around this space, 3 video screens with various performances created during the residencies, and on the walls, images, fragments, texts…
On the 30th of march we will activate this space, during the time of a public presentation « RR=FF ».
