The result of a partnership between the École nationale supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy and the École supérieure des Beaux-Arts TALM Tours-Angers-Le Mans, “Art by translation” examines the question of translation in the arts. Conceived as a third cycle, it proposes to work around several axes: the processes and ideological stakes of translation in the arts; the uses and functions of documents and archives in contemporary practice; the algorithm as a principle of cultural organization. A traveling program, it is dedicated to the research and production of works and exhibitions. This platform aims to develop alternative models of art history and theory practices, curatorial practices and artistic production in an international framework. Each session is devoted to a specific research theme and involves four young artists and/or curatorial fellows selected each year, students and teachers from both schools, as well as artists and researchers from different disciplines (art history and theory, comparative literature, artistic and curatorial practices…). According to the themes deployed, “Art by Translation” moves to different sites in Europe and other regions of the world.
An exhibition in which the artists fellows participate, is currently held at Ygrec, art center of the ENSAPC and at the Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, until June 4, 2022, as well as in the partner structures in Portugal, National Palace of Belém and Centro de Artes e Criatividade – Torres Vedras in Portugal
“UNE FOIS LA POUSSIÈRE RETOMBÉE” :VIETNAMESE ARTISTS AND PHOTOGRAPHY

On June 8, 1972, a cloud of black smoke rose into the clear sky, covering the vision of Trảng Bàng village on the horizon. The rural community had just been hit by a Napalm bomb. In the foreground of the photograph, a little girl was running barefoot on a concrete road. This photograph shook the Western world as it showed the horrific impact of war on civilians. As the Vietnamese tried to flee, not knowing whether their target would be a gun or a camera, notions of home, origin and family ties were shattered.
The intimacy of the family home became the receptacle for photojournalistic coverage of a war, described by the American writer Michael J. Arlen as “the living-room war”. But what about the photographic production of the Vietnamese themselves?
More broadly, what happened to the photographic corpus contemporary to Independence, but also to the productions made in everyday life and within Vietnamese families during the colonial period?
The study day “Une fois la poussière retombée”:Vietnamese artists and photography questions the destiny of vernacular photography and the ways in which artists, particularly from the diaspora, have used these images as sources in their work. By bringing together artists and researchers around these questions, the aim is to participate in a history of photography in Vietnam in order to question, notably in the light of postcolonial studies, the possible reconfigurations of memory and historical narratives, individual and collective, based on these practices.
