GENEVA, SWITZERLAND.- The Centre d’Art Contemporain directed by Katya García-Antón launches IMAGE—MOUVEMENT (I-M) a new platform of thought and experimentation dedicated to the past, present and future of the moving image in its diverse forms. I—M addresses the general public, artists, students and art professionals as well as scholars from the art world and beyond.

Its first act, IMAGE—MOUVEMENT 2010, includes an international exhibition, “Atlas. Truths, intervals, details and the afterlives of the image”, which will take place from the 9th of December 2010 to the 13th of February 2011 and a forum running from 9th to 12th December, 2010.

IMAGE—MOUVEMENT finds its roots in the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement (1997-2007), previously known as the Semaine Internationale de la Vidéo (1985- 1997), which had become an important cultural event in Switzerland and in Europe.

Given the rapidly shifting ground around the moving image today, IMAGE—MOUVEMENT has evolved in order to expand on the chronological and spatial limitations of its predecessor:

- Eschewing the biennial chronology and proposing instead a continuous set of exhibitions, screenings cycles, performances, conferences, publications and mediation projects

- Exploding spatial relations, through active collaborations with major European and global organisations and institutions

Each specific event presented contributes to nourish research and experimentation within the terrain of the moving image, and consolidates fertile ground upon which to construct IMAGE-MOUVEMENT on the long term.

IMAGE-MOUVEMENT is necessarily characterised by its heterogeneity, corresponding to the various incarnations of the moving image, and ranging from video, film, installation, to diaporama, text and performance. It also includes theoretical research on the current conditions of production and distribution of the moving image. This expanded approach crosses disciplinary boundaries (architecture, cinema, dance, design and theatre) and reflects the impact of the moving image on contemporary culture.

IMAGE-MOUVEMENT is inspired by a kaleidoscopic line of thinking, whereby each impulsion generates new associations and interactions.

First Act: IMAGE—MOUVEMENT 2010 An international exhibition and a four-day forum
IMAGE-MOUVEMENT 2010 proposes a critical zoom-in onto the malleability (discursive and perceptive) of the moving image, by exposing how its structural vulnerability is thoughtfully mined by artists today. The purpose of this first act is to speculate and to destabilise the moving image by conjuring up the notions of album, the archive and the library, amongst others. I—M 2010 touches on questions of critique, theory, production, display and mediation through a variety of styles, including screening cycles, performative & filmic discussions, public art projects, mediation projects and the exhibition format.

From the 9th December 2010 to the 13th of February 2011, IMAGE—MOUVEMENT 2010 presents a thematic exhibition curated by Katya García-Antón. The exhibition shows a dozen of artists, Swiss and international, whose works challenge the notion of the image as a specific product, a crystallization of truth. The artists work under the premise that our own reality, memory or history being constructions, the images should be treated as processes. In so doing reveal the equally artificial nature of the fictive and the factual within the image. Conceived of much like an album of images on the move, the exhibition « Atlas » is sensitive to the interval between images, that moment that connects - in space and/or in time - one image to another.
