Luma Days #4 Online
« In Transit : A Geography of Change »

This year the 4th edition of Luma Days offers a series of exceptional events broadcast on Luma Arles. A program of conferences, interviews, round tables and some live broadcasts enrich and nourish the theme of Luma Days #4 « 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.

Luma Yearbook 2020

Relive the highlights of the year

In early 2019, when we were considering the theme of Luma Days # 4 to be held in the summer of 2020, we could never have imagined how relevant it would become in the year ahead. The topic that was to bring us together in Arles was “In Transit. A Geography of Change”. By March 2020, due to the effects of Covid-19, nearly four billion people around the world went into lockdown. Overnight, the ecological, economic, and social transition urgencies became, emergencies. […]

Before long, the programmes that we had planned were dematerialised and resurfaced on our website where artists, architects, scientists, sociologists, and philosophers discussed the impending upheaval, but also possible ways forward into this new state of the world. […]

This annual publication, initially planned for Luma Days #4, naturally revolved around the activities that took place in this eventful and changing year, and became, the Luma Yearbook 2020. […] We are grateful to have met so many thought leaders and practitioners over these historic months who brought us closer to what matters here and now; evidence of the evolving notion of transition.

About

WHAT IS LUMA DAYS?

Luma Days is a yearly forum of art and ideas. It brings together all the activities 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.

The theme explored for this new edition refers to one of the major challenges of our time: TOGETHER, a declaration of interdependence

Why do we discuss interdependence today?
The concept of interdependence appeared in 1944 with the writings of the American philosopher and historian Will Durant, author of the first Declaration of Interdependence, a manifesto that claims the principles of equality and freedom as vectors of harmony. Over time, the notions of ethics, environment, ecology, have nourished the topic and its scope, as interdependence is not limited to the relations of human to human but of the human in the world, by taking into account the direct impact of the human imprint on the environment.
While collaborative structures have existed throughout time, the early 21st century brought a growing desire for interdependence, and the establishment of more concrete actions in this respect. In a « post-work » world, our way of living together and working together will be challenged. How can we balance the new interdependence between man and machine? How do we deal with governance, responsibly, and legislative and regulatory environment where these questions can be explored and resolved?
Luma Days #3 examines interdependence as a tool to forge new links between Arts and Culture, Environment and Human Rights, Education and Research.

As part of Luma Days #3, the exhibition A School of Schools: Design as Learning is the exceptional setting of the discussions and public events on the theme of interdependence.

The theme of this second edition is Hospitality: Searching for Common Ground.
While hospitality is a fundamental value of any culture, linked to the timeless and universal ideal of profound affiliation, today it seems to have lost its true meaning, until recently adopting a contrary resonance.
Our project at the Parc des Ateliers, an interdisciplinary platform that produces and hosts artistic and cultural activities, was conceived as a site for hospitality. This theme is also inherent in the design of the site’s park and garden. Hospitality is an individual act and a collective action, that of course goes beyond the limits of the Parc des Atelier and affects every citizen in Arles and the Camargue region.
Throughout the week, several themes follow and nourish the exchanges around hospitality, such as climate change, design, territorial resilience, heritage, culture, foreign, identity… The Luma Nights host shows, performances and DJ sets and make way for enchantment and celebration.

This first edition of Luma Days, entitled Scenarios for a City in a Bioregion, presents an annual event created and designed by Luma Arles.
Located at the intersection of art, design, technology, activism and ecology, Luma Days act as a mediator between local and global and draw credible and sustainable scenarios thanks to the implementation of creative and collaborative processes. During this event, the research and production work carried out by Atelier Luma is shared with the public, as this laboratory aims to place Arles on the map of platforms for reflection and innovation.

This first edition is created in collaboration with Ideas City and the New Museum in New York.
The stage is set to explore scenarios for the city of Arles and its rural context. Bringing together international and local experts and influencers, the weeklong workshops reflects on the possibilities and opportunities of five future city scenarios: 1/City of Culture & Agriculture; 2/ City as Campus: 3/ 21st Century Factory Town; 4/ UNESCO City 3.0, and 5/The Global Village.
