Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers
Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers is a place for research and creation, for resources and experimentation, developed in intimate cooperation with its setting (from the most local to the international sense) and with its audiences, and in relationship with the artists. It invents the tools to conceive artistic practices from all fields – visual art, dance, performance, theatre, literature, etc. – viewing them as a process of learning, sharing and experiencing; an intermediary object that is capable of investigating and taking the measure of the most urgent contemporary issues, reinventing ways of being together, while taking a risk and upsetting our approach and our conception of art.
Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers is one of those rare places where art is never disconnected from cultural, social and political reality, one of those places committed to differences and plural identities, a place in perpetual motion that takes shape around the artistic projects that it upholds and works to defend.
Setting up projects with artists involves an often lengthy time of research, an absolute must to create strong connections between the artistic projects, the region and people. It is also this concept of time that Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers observes and works in in order to invent new methods for public visibility that go beyond simple exhibitions and showings of finished works.
