Collectif – Flux, une société en mouvement
Following the eponymous photographic commission initiated by Cnap in 2018, Flux, a society in motion presents the work of fifteen photographers or artist duos who bear witness to the multiple flows irrigating the world today and their environmental and societal consequences.
This possibility or impossibility of movement is the basis of the conditions of existence of each form of life. But financial flows, logistical flows, human flows, electrical flows, data flows, raw material flows are all intertwined, get carried away and sometimes end up overflowing.
The text that introduces the book, written by Bruce Bégout, philosopher and novelist, great explorer of our planet under the influence of globalization, is conceived, in the form of a carte blanche, as a sixteenth participation in this project. Each of the artists has freely laid out their images and chosen an author to put them into words.
This photographic book, through these singular artistic and critical languages, thus exposes a wide range of today’s French photographic scene, which represents and documents to produce an updated knowledge of all aspects of life, from the most visible to the most minute. The collection also illustrates the importance of the commission in the history of contemporary photographic practices, which have initiated essential moments, particularly in times of crisis.
