Stine Marie Jacobsen will speak about her ongoing project ‘Direct Approach,’ which is a platform for discussion about various perspectives on violence. During her ISCP residency, this project took the form of a podcast featuring young people sharing their thoughts on violence in film and reality. For her talk, Jacobsen’s local collaborators and participants will speak about the impact of the project.
Inspired by a recent residency in an astronomical observatory, Yann Pocreau will discuss artistic production in the context of life beyond the earth. He will also speak about the effects of this residency on his new projects, and more generally about the use of light in his work.
