21C/19C _ Debate 02 _ on the art world and on photography then and now

21C/19C_Procedures for Anthropometric Image Reversal is a performative 16mm filmwork on the painful colonial archive, specfically the anthropometric photography of 1860-1900.

Western photographers took images, sometimes in a ‘scientific’ project, sometimes in a more exotic goal, always in an unequal power relation. I tested showing this filmwork in a series of debates, in order to find out how to contextualize this filmwork. One of the conclusions is, that I will try to always give the public (at performances, in exhibitions) a chance to answer. Like in this debate 02; in French and English mostly. It was held on November 18th 2017 at Creative District, Brussels.
