|Nan Goldin, Autoportrait après avoir été battue (1984)|
Publicité Benetton, campagne de 1996
Le télescopage du texte et de l’image a été un sujet de réflexion inhabituel et dérangeant.
Food for thought
After the projection of three short features at the Cinéma des Cinéastes in Paris, the European class participated in the second part of the “Mon Oeil!”program.
We attended a two-hour conference during at school. The host introduced a few photos and commented them.
These pictures were more or less recent and dealt with different kinds of style.
Some were disturbing and unsettling like one shot by Nan Goldin representing a battered woman or a Benetton campaign fighting against racism through three identical hearts supposedly coming from persons with different skin colours.
Some others were lighter and funnier like a RATP campaign representing a hen with a human body chattering away on her cell phone in a bus, a humorous way to criticize uncivil people in public transport.
This was quite unsettling and puzzling but provided food for thought.
