Comment inventer un monde durable ?

En Septembre 2015, les états membres de l’ONU ont adopté 17 objectifs pour éradiquer la pauvreté, protéger la planète et garantir la prospérité pour tous dans le cadre d’un nouvel agenda de dévelopement durable. Pour que les objectifs soient atteints, chacun doit faire sa part : les gouvernements, le secteur privé, la société civile et les citoyens.

Comment les artistes alimentent-ils le débat public et peuvent-ils encourager l’engagement citoyen ? Comment observer et mesurer les changements environnementaux ? Quelle est la portée d’action des organisations internationales et des gouvernements. Des intervenants de renom présenteront lors d’une table ronde des visions finlandaises, françaises et marocaines dans cette lutte pour un monde durable en commun.

La table-ronde sera suivie d’une projection exclusive de la version complète du documentaire HUMAN, réalisé par Yann Arthus-Bertrand, en partenariat avec le festival DocPoint.

Jani LEINONEN, Artist: “Disobedience as an Educational Tool”

Jani Leinonen (b. 1978 lives and works in Helsinki) plays with the systems of commodity exchange, celebrity and the marketing strategies through which they operate. Leinonen attacks symbols and marketing tactics, turning them into objects of ridicule, clichéing our agreed marketing society and economical every day. With these strikes Leinonen unfolds the chain reaction we all are voluntarily involved in and plays up the iconographies of the global brand land. Leinonen’s installations are shops, bars, slot machines but also plain painting exhibitions. What is displayed, though, are not goods but an artistic allegorisation that appropriates these marketing strategies only in order to unhinge their underlying assumptions about value and appropriateness.

Leinonen graduated from Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki in 2002. His works have been exhibited widely internationally, i.e at the Nordic Pavillion at the 53rd Venice Biennial, Galerie Gmurzynska, Wilhem Hack Museum Ludwgshafen, Frankfurter Kunstverein and ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand, b. 1946, has always had a passion for the animal world and the natural environment.

Since 2004 Arthus-Bertrand has directed several successful documentary films focusing on environmental and human rights questions.

In 2005 Arthus-Bertrand created the Goodplanet Foundation that aims to raise public awareness of environmental issues, implement carbon offset programs and fight deforestation with local NGOs. Thanks to his commitment, Arthus-Bertrand was designated Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme.
