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?
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.
From his current research on the ontology of images, Philppe Descola offers a new view on the artworks of the exhibition through an anthropologic perspective, using his four classification categories that he introduced to represent reality.
