Ethnoscape: moving knowledge (ENS, CNSAD)

This project uses artistic creation as a cognitive tool for exploring an important geo-political fact of contemporary societies, the “student migrations”.Inspired by the reflection of the American anthropologist of Indian origin Arjun Appadurai, this project, supported by the ENS (DHTA) and the CNSAD, will consist in the organization of an artist residency at the ENS centered on this issue. A group of students from ENS and CNSAD, participating in a workshop organized by the choreographer Cécile Proust and the video-artist Jacques Hoeppfner will realize a collective artistic project containing documentary elements (portraits, surveys, landscapes) and aiming at documenting this human movement linked to knowledge, research, and training.
