Moeglin-Delcroix was formerly in charge of the artist book collection at the Print Department of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and is the author of Esthétique du livre d’artiste: une introduction à l’art contemporain. She co-curates The Reprint Collection, an initiative devoted to reprinting artists’ books from the early 1960s onwards. And the american poet and Warhol-expert Tan Lin, with focus to produce an “ambient” literature in relation to digital technologies and with a focus on print and demand etc. Also, Sylvie Boulanger, director for CNEAI (a national art center). CNEAI is devoted to artists’ publication. Founded in 2004 by Cneai, Salon LIght became over a few years an unmissable rendezvous for micro-publishers and artist’s publication in Paris.

Forensis: Architecture at the Threshold of Detectibility
A Lecture by Eyal Weizman, Professor of Spatial & Visual Cultures, and Director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London

In his lecture, Eyal Weizman will also present work undertaken with the Forensic Architecture teams in relation to urban and architectural destruction in Israel/Palestine, environmental violence in Guatemala and their research for the UN on drone warfare in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. Forensic Architecture, an agency composed of artists, filmmakers and architectural researchers, uses architecture as sensor and an agent that can detect political force-fields and respond to them. Weizman will show how architectural methods and new sensing technologies could be used to expose the logic of violent conflict while raising a host of conceptual problems to do with the thresholds of vision and law.
