Annie Abrahams


International Conference on Social Networking in the Cultural Domain
18th of December 2010
Fondation Vasarely
1 avenue Marcel Pagnol
13090 Aix-en-Provence, France

How can the cultural community benefit from the recent boom of the social networking tools?

Artistic creation and cultural production has become dependent on the use of on-line social networks where basically anyone can remotely and for free collaborate, co-produce, discuss and learn as well as teach and guide one another. Given these new communication possibilities, a growing number of creative individuals and intercultural operators can innovate to produce excellent creative content and offer high-quality cultural services often with enormous social and environmental relevance and impact.

Speakers : Annie Abrahams, Burak Arikan, Louis Bec, Ivan Chabanaud, Josephine Dorado, Pino Foris, Paulo Gouveia, Achilleas Kentonis, Gregoire Lauvin, Jaki Levy, Alessandro Ludovico, Agnieszka Pokrywka, Marlon Barrios Solano et Lenara Verle.

My thinking is more about communication: about, on the one hand, the desire of being close with someone and, on the other, the necessity of restricting one’s openness, of closing oneself, of retreating from intimacy.Maybe a performance is for me, as an artist, what an article is to a scientific researcher –that is, a way to make public, to share, something that you think is important for other people to know about or to feel. I hate politics. I prefer action

qui suis-je? Annie Abrahams (1999) Review, article de Cyril Thomas, Rédacteur en chef de la nouvelle revue trilingue, Transdigital, dédiée aux arts de la scène et aux nouvelles technologies. Il collabore également à diverses revues papier ou sur internet, notamment Ciel Variable, Scènes,, et Patch.

“Je souris, parce que le temps travaille, ne résiste pas, la vérité est relative, ailleurs, là où ça n’existe plus, où on ne parle plus. Le “je ” dans “Qui suis je?” était le site, je l’avais personnalisé ce site, je l’avais fait parler, parce qu’il était menacé par le désaccord, par l’éparpillement, par .. , il était mort peu après … Je te souris. ” Annie à Cyril 01 09 2010.  “Cet article est comme une séance de psychanalyse.”
