Sextinction ?

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.05.2020

Is there a ‘sextinction’ in progress? The recent observation that sexual practices are experiencing a reduction among the younger generation deserves a close scrutiny. Paradoxically, the liberation from constraints and taboos that had impacted sexuality has eventually made possible its relativization with regard to other activities. As a language, ethic, and culture, sex is being reinvented within the moving picture of social life. [...]

Mon psy à la maison ?

Mots tus et lieux dits.

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 02.03.2020

Une affiche dans le métro. Elle fait la publicité pour des psychologues venant au domicile des patients. Mais elle interroge aussi la nature de la relation entre les lieux et les habitants à travers les mots qui en résultent. Ce faisant, elle implique l’une des questions essentielles de l’habiter. Habite-t-on d’abord une langue ou des lieux ? [...]

Mariage à la Cook.

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.11.2019

Seen through the experience of a couple on their honeymoon, the bankruptcy of the Thomas Cook company is structurally revealed as the all too successful success of a project aimed at training residents in tourism.

Recycler le cycle.

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.10.2019

Seasons are commonly presented as meteorological cycles deriving from climatic phenomena. They rather are conventional divisions of time and are part of the ritualization of social life’s repetitive components. As a result, when the presence or the absence of "natural" seasons and their supposed qualities or flaws are simplistically invoked, vigilance might be required. However, societies constantly strove to bypass cyclic weather constraints. Contradictions between official seasons and climatic practices actually paved the way for worthy-of-attention imaginaries and aesthetics. [...]
