The next day after this conference at the Institut Français du Maroc a round table takes place at Le Cube – independent art room in order to prolong together the presented research of le peuple qui manque.
“Curating comme rhapsodie”
(curating as a rhapsody)
In the Miroir d’Hérodote, François Hartog spoke about rhapsody. This poet of ancient Greece is a narrator who goes from one city to the other, to recite poems written by others. He is, literally, like a person who sews spaces to each other; a liaison agent who is preoccupied by continuously linking spaces, in the limits of the inhabited world.
Rhapsody could be seen like a curatorial act par excellence, a weaving of narrations and stories.
It is also the narrative principle underlying a film, in progress, Les Impatients. It is a chrono-political series that takes the form of a quest on a world-wide scale, a global – but not totalizing – cartography of many signs of the future that emerge here and there.
