Image de Ville – November the 13th 2007

13 November 2007 at 1:21 pm (Exhibition, Image de Ville, School of Art)

This morning we had a conference held by Till Roesken, a German artist graduated in 2003 from the Strasbourg Arts Décoratifs Art Academy. His work, called “les plans de situation”, has as central topic the map theme. He treats maps incarnating local habitants’ and personnages’ point of view. He makes theatrical performances where he speaks about the neighborhood with a sort of schizophrenic personality representing several locals.

His most recent work, still unreleased, is a film about la Joliette, a neighborhood in Marseille (you can find a nice blog about Marseille here) that is being restored to be transformed into a rich business center called Euromediterranée. Roesken speaks about a block where inhabitants are being legally expelled by local authorities. The film is still in production.
