Politique 0, 1-3 October 2010 in Paris
Politique 0 is organized by Upgrade! Paris, Éditions MF and RYBN collective, and aims to bring together in a week-end installations, video projections, performances, lectures, with artists, curators, researchers, theoreticians...from local and international scenes, around the relationships between politics and media, and the forms its generates.

Our starting point is the observation of a generalization and diversification of marketing and communication uses in the political environment. Political power can not be assessed through territory more than control and dissemination of information and the use of media, which is accompanied by a renewal of forms, methods, vocabulary, myths and a proliferation of popular topics such as security or nationalism. Can we speak about an aesthetic of propaganda? How these forms and mechanisms are invested, criticized, analyzed or reinvented and diverted by the artists ?

Politique 0 is designed as a platform for exchange between different approaches to sharing experiences and knowledge in the willingness to break with the traditional transmitter-receiver mode of public events. During 3 days several initiatives are linked and overlap in a commun space. This space for reflection, exchange of documentation and experimentations is modular and can bring together different forms of discourse and practice. It assumes and feeds on its own contradictions.
