Series created in 2007 and supervised by Giusy Pisano.
This series apprehends artistic media as visual and auditory experiences and memories but it also considers images and sounds as knowledge and techniques. This articulation between thoughts and techniques invites the reader to contemplate images and sounds with an interdisciplinary and inter-mediatic approach, an approach considering temporality as the two-folded history of the material, as well as the mental, production of images and sounds. The representations of the latter, in relation to visual and auditory experiences but also in their social and political applications are explored by works within this series, as are the notions of "aesthetic eye and ear" as "models" idiosyncratic to each era, the interdependence between various cultural phenomena or the tensions between art and technique created by the introduction of novel technologies. Designed as a space enabling the circulation of works and ideas, “Images et sons” works in close collaboration with French and Northern American universities and heritage institutions.

Intermédialité et circulation des formes circassiennes
Arts du spectacle - Images et sons
Circus and cinema have often been thought together for a long time, but in terms of themes and incorporation: it is the cinema which seizes the circus to appropriate its universe, its characters, its stories, and vice versa. But the fruitfulness of the links that unite the two practices can not be limited to a one way ticket. Circus and cinema...
In countries with an enormous film supply coming essentially from other continents, but with its own (albeit irregular and sometimes non-existent) film production, what have been the dominant modes of production? What has been the impact of the digital revolution on the modes of production? What are the economic, industrial and social issues raised
