Each year the Brussels art academy erg (école supérieure des arts) organizes for its students an interdisciplinary event with conferences, encounters, masterclasses, performances, exhibitions and projections. For the edition of 2014 BOZAR CINEMA and CINEMATEK are more than willing to collaborate.

This year's seminar, entitled Archives of the present, Genealogies of the future, aims at crossing different artistic relations to historical, social, and cultural production; relations to its archiving, to its modes of memorization, to its readings and their usage, to its potential appropriations, to its representations. Different artistic relations stemming from different outlooks and standpoints (drives to question what exists, to act upon it, to aestheticize it, or to keep a distance from it), different geographies and practices of thought (philosophical, cinematographic, documentary, editorial, musical, learned, historical, utopian) with a firm grip on realities (historical and social situations and conditions) that play along or resist, realities to come, or whose advent is impossible.
