Understanding Uprisings
Study day led by Georges Didi-Huberman and Sara Guindani
03 December 2016
11h00 to 19h00
Jeu de Paume, Paris

This study day will look at the theme of “uprisings” in both the political and aesthetic senses of the term. Sociologists, philosophers, economists, political scientists, psychoanalysts and historians will be invited to talk about the ways in which images can arouse collective emotions and to consider contemporary issues such as the representativeness of political gestures, the circulation of images in the “globalised” world and the power of these images to create new spaces of mobilisation and to inspire revolt in new populations.

Study day led by Georges Didi-Huberman and Sara Guindani with Pierandrea Amato, Alain Bertho, Maxime Boidy, Ilaria Bussoni, Mathilde Girard, Jean-Louis Laville, Frédéric Lordon, Marielle Macé, Perrine Poupin, Sophie Wahnich and Michel Wieviorka.
