Filmo-sessions is a cycle of encounters devoted to the intersections between art and film, proposed by art critic and exhibition curator Jean-Max Colard.
The second episode of the Filmo-Sessions at the Fondation Vuitton showcases a unique and exceptional conversation between two towering figures on the contemporary art scene: visual artist Daniel Buren and filmmaker Frederick Wiseman.
With reference to disciplines and methods characteristic respectively of contemporary art and the cinema, Daniel Buren and Frederick Wiseman confront issues such as the burden of history, the institution of culture, and the architecture of iconic locations.
How do these artists approach the occupation of a given site or cultural institution? How do they prepare films and artworks destined to appear in such specific contexts?
