The «Master de Cherbourg» is a new production, creation, exchange and experimentation structure which will open its doors in September 2018. The «Master de Cherbourg» is thinking way beyond just a school program but as a research group ruled by students, teachers, artists, curators, researchers, local people, farmers, poets, etc., questioning the important issues of our time, the idea of production and more generally some ideas about « making, doing. » « What are we gonna do? » and « What are we doing now? » These are the questions of our shared work.
In the spirit of co-construction, the «Master de Cherbourg» is engaged in: open field history, odd philosophy, metal, psychoanalysis, spray paint, mental sociology, wood and hood, parallel economy, natural wine, motocross, ocean, gardening, countrying, whatevering. A cosmic city and a moving landscape. Everything will be engaged regarding the participant’s proposal in a large scale narrative where the obsolescence of the conflicts of work vs document or information vs fiction will be a profound dynamic of our work.
Participants are provided with a working studio, a technical workshop and housing accommodations.
