Luma Days #4
27 – 31 May 2020
IN TRANSIT: A GEOGRAPHY OF CHANGE
This forum proposes to map the change and the transition to a new state of being, of the world, of the spirit, of business… to explore the stages of the transition process. The Geography of Change points – in time and space – to the lessons to be drawn from permanent transformation. Transported beyond our current limits, this forum reveals new potentials for ways of thinking and acting.
Founder and President of the Luma Foundation
Luma Days #4 will take place from Wednesday 27 to Sunday 31 May 2020, at Luma Arles, Parc des Ateliers in Arles. We will discuss the following topic: In Transit: A Geography of Change.
The concept of transition is inherent in a time of change and renewal, leading to the transformation of how we deal with the environment, technology, economy, education, health… It calls for a global reconstruction of our systems. It is not limited to a state of mind about the world, but it allows for action to build a more resilient society.
This new edition of Luma Days will feature visions and actions that map out a new geography of change. We will approach the transition through a cultural prism, with a 2-day conference cycle entitled C’est Urgent! co-created with Hans Ulrich Obrist within the framework of his traveling exhibition It’s Urgent! The French National Institute of Art History will discuss the topic issue of restitution of works of art, which is defining a new geography of heritage. Scientists, artists, philosophers, architects will also come together to discuss the urgencies of our time.
The program will also feature a series of expert talks; the first Algae Summit created with Atelier Luma, and a local and national view on ecological transition.
More information coming soon
ABOUT LUMA DAYS
Luma Days is a yearly forum of art and ideas. It brings together all the elements that compose Luma Arles’ program and kicks off the summer season with a week of public events, conferences, professional workshops, displays, and art installations.
During Luma Days, the city of Arles becomes a center of gravity in the Mediterranean region, where local and international experts, scientists, artists, thinkers, and activists converge with the general public to share ideas and experiences around topical issues.
Each year, Luma Days considers a theme linked to the preoccupations of the foundation and that can make a social impact. In 2017, Luma Days #1 developed Scenarios for a City in a Bioregion. In 2018, Luma Days #2 exchanges were devoted to Hospitality, Searching for Common Ground. In 2019, the theme explored for the third edition refers to one of the major challenges of our time: TOGETHER, a declaration of interdependence.
