The CENTQUATRE-PARIS and the Festival d'Automne à Paris present this installation in co-realisation. 

Featuring different works by the LIMINAL, Forensic Oceanography and Border Forensics collectives, the multimedia installation From Sea to Sky approaches intersectional immobility and frontier-based violence at sea. The objective is to highlight the way in which the Mediterranean maritime space has been transformed into a militarized border zone.

From Sea to Sky is a multimedia installation specially created for the Festival d'Automne and CENTQUATRE-PARIS. The evidence gathered sheds light upon the role played by Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, and in particular the outsourcing of its aerial surveillance services to private contractors. Aerial surveillance has become a strategic element of the efforts made by European Union states to drive away asylum-seekers attempting to reach Europe by boat, in the course of which the latter become victims of systematic violence, on a considerable and widespread scale. Centred on two wide-reaching video works, this exhibition also includes a sound-based piece, as well as multimedia and cartographic works. Together, they enable us to dissect the real-life experiences of those who cross by boat the deadliest migratory route in the world.

Zifzafa, is an arabic word to describe a wind that shakes and rattles all in its path. Here, it becomes the title of a performance of artist and researcher Lawrence Abu Hamdan, that enmeshes sonic composition, video game engines and spoken word, to immerse us in the heart of a movement to resist green colonialism in the occupied Syrian Golan heights.

A year after the premier of IRIS at the Butte-aux-Cailles swimming pool, commissioned by the Festival d'Automne, in which he explored the Italian polyphonic repertoire, Alessandro Sciarroni brings us U.

In 1947, the trial of German playwright Bertolt Brecht took place in the United States in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), responsible for combating communist activism. It was here that Brecht wrote a declaration which he was forbidden to read out. The minutes of the trial, as well as this declaration, constitute one of the axes of this exuberant show.
