Exhibition from September 14th to November 24th The CRP / presents the first exhibition in France of Brazilian Bijari Art Collective. Based in São Paulo, they were invited by the art center to conduct a participatory and collaborative project with residents of Douchy-les-Mines, interested in the dynamics, affections or conflicts that roam and configure a public space. The exhibition La Machine du Monde finds its origin in the inevitably conflictual relations between the construction of the Brazilian local memory and the global historical and contemporary representations of the collective colonial unconscious. At this crucial juncture where the environmental issue takes the form of a conflict between the dominant models of intensive exploitation, and the survival of the local peoples and their struggle for the possession of the land. How do we feel about the territory and how can we redesign the idea of a nation that opens up to the different alterities, to the different productions of local knowledge? Opening on Saturday, September 14th / 12h30 free shuttles are offered on the day of opening, from Valenciennes, on reservation and within the limits of the available places.
