Curated by Etienne Sandrin.
IIP Détournement is Tania Bruguera’s response to the invitation to a new series called Voir/Revoir at the Centre Pompidou, in which the institution gives carte blanche to an artist to explore and work with their archives and collection.
The project will take place the week of September 8 – 13 from 11 AM to 9 PM simultaneously at the space of Forum-1 and in the streets around the Centre.
The parameter for the selection of the works to be shown inside the Centre was the acceptance by the artists in The New Media Collection to give permission to copy their work in it to be sold for 1 Euro a piece in the streets. The source material for the reproduction have been provided by the artists and, in the cases where the participating artists can’t send them, they have been bootlegged.
Once the project has ended, a digital book comprising a description of the project, the correspondence with the artists, images and video documentation of the events will be available for free download over the Internet with a link at the project page at the Pompidou website as well as at www.taniabruguera.com.
