“Transmissions” is a web radio service in collaboration with *Duuu radio designed “for,” “by,” and “with” the art center’s many different users. A place for coming together to exchange ideas, this broadcast invites visitors to give voice to what they think and feel about the center’s shows, featured works, and artists. “Transmissions” is working to extend outreach to narratives other than those offered by the institution, seeking through web radio experimentation and trial-and-error to upend traditional educational connections. Drawing its inspiration from the famous literary movement Oulipo (Ouvroir de littérature potentielle, or Workshop for Potential Literature), this web broadcast is taking shape as an ouvroir de médiation potentielle, a “workshop for potential outreach.” Play and conversation invite our listeners to enter CAC Brétigny through the intentionally dissonant and diverse perception of all who set foot inside the center.
During his residency, * Duuu thus deploys its mobile studio at the CAC Brétigny and on the territory of Cœur d'Essonne Agglomeration and joins forces for the occasion with the artist Théo Robine-Langlois to design and imagine the podcasts in collaboration with the users of the place.
Curator: Elena Lespes Muñoz.
- “Sâr Dubnotal” seen by the students of the UPE2A class of the Lycée Jean-Pierre Timbaud in Brétigny-sur-Orge.
For this first session, the high school students worked on a selection of works from the exhibition they chose to present. Together, they then led a collective discussion about the superhero figure and propose to invent their own superheroes. They approach the themes of the exhibition from their background and knowledge, as well as through writing, recording and listening exercises.
