  • VanderA Observatory - About Contemporary Art Jewellery

In collaboration with Ròt-Bò-Krik Éditions, the Contemporary Art Jewellery Observatory proposes a conversation with Ariella Aïsha Azoulay, author and director of essay films questioning the means used by the imperialist world such as language, cartography, photos but also artefacts and their know-how.

After the presentation of her latest book, “La Résistance des Bijoux - Contre les géographies coloniales“, we will exchange, together with the author Ariella Aïsha Azoulay and Carole Mengal, Director of the Jeanne Toussaint Institute - host of this event, ideas around our relationship to objects and more particularly to jewellery.

How can jewellery lead us to learn and unlearn? In her book, which subtly mixes personal narrative, political theory and poetry, the author summons the notion of “muscle memory“ to bring back a supposed vanished world.
