Conversation Emanuele Coccia - Vinciane Despret
Event

In parallel with the In Tune with the World exhibition, a number of events will be scheduled at which artists, scientists, sociologists, anthropologists and philosophers come together for face-to-face encounters with the public.

 

This Conversation is broadcasted on the Fondation's website (in French only).

 

In what new ways are humans tied to their environment?

 

Conversation around animal and vegetal sensibility perceived as a form of communication and the new approach that connects humans with other living species.

 

Today’s artists reflect and interpret the fascinating, leading-edge research being conducted to understand the oneness of the countless forms of life that form the tapestry of our world, blurring the distinctions between human, animal, plant and even mineral.

 

This In Tune with the World exhibition is based on a specific theme that explores current questions about mankind’s place in the universe and new approaches to how humans are tied to their environment and the realm of living things.
