Festina Lente journal
Euridice Zaituna Kala, Sophie Kaplan, Léa Muller, Kantuta Quirós, Evariste Richer et Gilles A. Tiberghien
The Festina Lente thematic cycle is accompanied by a journal. Its aim is to broaden and expand upon the questions raised by the artists invited to take part in the exhibitions and residencies that mark the cycle.
Festina Lente journal further develops the points of view and pursues the questions raised by the exhibitions and residencies in the cycle. It is overseen by a scientific committee composed of artists and theorists: Euridice Kala, Sophie Kaplan, Léa Muller, Kantuta Quirós, Evariste Richer and Gilles A. Tiberghien.
The members of the committee meet regularly to develop the journal’s content. Whether they are artists, researchers, philosophers or landscape architects, they all share the same concern for the living world, the common good and human-terrestrial history, at the same time differing in their approaches and fields of research that are sometimes quite dissimilar.
The journal is published twice a year and brings together contributions from authors from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines: art historians, writers, anthropologists, biologists, etc.
Through case studies, theoretical texts and artistic contributions, it raises the following questions:
— Can the power to act help rethink and change the world?
— How and what to create in a damaged world with an uncertain future?
