Session description

Arts are privileged places of individual and collective recomposition of cultural processes. They document the concerns of their time but they also carry new horizons of desires and practices for the future societies. The arts shape ways of seeing, feeling, moving and speaking about the world. In this way they open sensitive paths, symbols, figures, stories, corporalities, thus building collective cultural perceptions that reinvent our relationship to reality.

Artists and scientists cultivate different ways of looking at the world from practices and theoretical frameworks that are often unfamiliar to both. If creativity seems to be common, the investigations, the analyses, the modes of productions or restitution seem very distant, even antinomic and so often hierarchize in terms of knowledges. In the last twenty years, fruitful alliances between Arts and Sciences have been invented and growing on ecological themes. Visual artists, choreographers, sound artists, circus artists… call upon scientists for their projects (Nicolas Floch', Anaïs Tondeur, (n), Jennifer Monson, Andrea Olsen...). Initiatives from scientists emerge also.

Faced with ecological disasters, many scientists who actively contribute to enlighten and disentangle the phenomena in progress, try to make their research known to the general public through art. They estimate that the sensitive and formal character (visual, sensory, immersive) of arts would be promising to the transmissions of knowledge, to the public debate of our collective futures. Facing the current state of the world and the political inaction, they are often themselves taken by feelings of hopelessness and discouragement to which the scientific register, little able to recognize the existence of subjectivation processes, cannot answer.
From this form of art instrumentalization sometimes comes experiences full of creative synergies that will be shared, without omitting the difficulties of interdisciplinary work. During this symposium we will also discuss how arts-sciences intersect, for instance in terms of “methods” employed, and how this contributes to a renewal of study corpus. The Symposium welcome scientists mainly from scientific ecology (the SFE2, Gfö, EEF communities) who are engaged in singular approaches with artists, artworks or artistic practices.
