Klaxon reflects CIFAS' interest for "living" artistic intervention in the public space, an interest that has taken the form of several urban practice workshops, as well as thematic meetings and workshops within the Urban Academy on Art and the City, extended since 2014 to a series of living artworks presented in the public space under the banner SIGNAL.
New number: Klaxon 11
"Artists in the Urban Factory"*
* The English version of Klaxon 11 is yet being translated. Be patient, it will soon be available! In the meantime, if you speak French, you can download it here.
More and more artists working in public spaces are no longer just seeking to create in the city, but to create the city. When and how do they fit into the urban factory? What are their operating procedures? What effects do their artistic actions have? What are the challenges and limits of these new modes of urban production? With an overview article by Pascal Le Brun-Cordier, an article by Julie Bordenave on urban psychoanalysis, a focus on the city of Copenhagen with several articles and interviews, an article by Jana Revedin on the Berlin collective Raumlabor, and an interview with Sofiane Ouissi and Jan Goossens about Dream City, an art biennale in the city (Tunis).
