Creation at Les SUBS as part of the Geyser call for projects with the Grütli, Geneva
Mentored by Yan Duyvendak
When the law, particularly the law of contracts, becomes the subject of art. In this performance, the ten co-authors from Conakry to Grenoble assert their contractual ties against the migration policies that try to separate them. Whether they have valid papers to stay in France, they are seeking asylum, or they are prohibited from staying here, they work together and invoke a principle of co-dependence. Enriched by meetings with legal system professionals, documentaries, archives and oral histories, this activism, which is both artistic and legal, highlights the need for acts of resistance.
