I actu culture I news culture I الأخبار ثقافة Depuis 1895, la Biennale de Venise est l'une des manifestations artistiques internationales les plus prestigieuses qui tend à mettre en avant l'art contemporain sous ses diverses expressions : l'art, la danse, le cinéma, le théâtre, l'architecture et la musique, et décerne tous les deux ans les récompenses : les Lions d'Or. Elle se déroulera cette année du 13 Mai au 26 Novembre 2017 au cœur de la cité des Doges et aura pour thème « Viva Arte Viva ». Invitée à célébrer l’art, la Tunisie propose pour sa première participation de mettre en avant un sujet actuel et qui lui tient a cœur : les migrations humaines. En effet, comme nous l’explique Lina Lazaar, vice-présidente de la Fondation KLF et coordinatrice du projet : « Dans le monde entier, les migrations humaines - autrefois le symbole de notre évolution sociale continue - font face à des vents contraires des mouvements nationalistes populistes. La rhétorique divisive centrée sur la construction de murs et la surveillance des frontières, se traduit par une action inquiétante et est maintenant considérée comme normale. La crise humanitaire qui en résulte est devenue un cas limite qui met à l'épreuve notre investissement dans les droits de l'Homme, sinon les termes de notre investissement dans l'humanité elle-même. C'est la manifestation migratoire de cette crise et la réévaluation de notre humanité collective, qui est au cœur du pavillon national tunisien. L'événement collatéral soigneusement développé, au cœur du pavillon, constituera la base d'une manifestation performative et individuelle». Cette participation très attendue de la Tunisie cette année a pu voir le jour grâce au patronage de la présidence de la République, du Ministère des affaires culturelles ainsi qu’une très belle alliance de mécènes tunisiens qui ont soutenu le projet, le tout initié par la Fondation Kamel Lazaar. I Tunisia at the heart of the 57th International Art Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia تونس في ضيافة بينالي البندقية The 57th Venice Biennale introduces Tunisia pavilion for the first time. A forceful, ambitious initiative to enhance a large number of talented Tunisian artists on the international art scene. The Venice Biennale, founded in 1895 is now one of the most prestigious cultural organisations in the world standing at the forefront of research and promotion of new contemporary art trends, in all its specific sectors: Arts, Architecture, Cinema, Dance, Music and Theatre, and awarding every two years the Golden Lion. The exhibition, titled “Viva Arte Viva” will be open to the public from May 13th to November 26th 2017, at the City of the Doges. Invited to celebrate art, Tunisia will mount for its premiere, an exhibition over a news topic, themed human migrations. Indeed, Lina Lazaar, KLF Foundation Vice- President and Project Co-ordinator, explains: "The world, over human migrations, formerly the symbol of our continued social evolution, is facing headwinds from populist nationalist movements. Divisive rhetoric centred on the building of walls and the policing of borders, is worryingly translating into action, and is now considered normal. The ensuing humanitarian crisis has, in turn, become a limit case that is challenging our investment in human rights, if not the terms of our investment in humanity itself. It is the migratory manifestation of this crisis, and the resulting reassessment of our collective humanity, that is at the heart of the Tunisian national pavilion. The carefully developed collateral event, at the heart of the pavilion, will form the basis of a silent, individual protest.” Tunisia’s long-awaited attendance this year was made possible thanks to the patronage of the Presidency of the Republic, the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, and a very fruitful alliance of Tunisian patrons, who supported the project, initiated by Kamel Lazaar Foundation.I سوف تشهد الدورة السابعة والخمسين لبينالي الفن المعاصر في البندقية،‏ مشاركة تونس للمرة األولى بجناح رسمي.‏ وهي مبادرة قوية وطموحة من شأنها إبراز عدد كبير من الفنانين الموهوبين التونسيين وتكريس أسمائهم على الصعيد الدولي.‏ منذ عام ،1895 ‏"بينالي البندقية"‏ هي واحدة من التظاهرات الفنية الدولية المرموقة التي تسلط الضوء على الفن المعاصر بمختلف أشكاله وأنواعه : الفن،‏ الرقص،‏ السينما،‏ المسرح،‏ الهندسة المعمارية،‏ والموسيقى،‏ وتسند جوائز كل سنتين : األسود الذهبية.‏ وستقام الدورة هذه السنة من 13 ماي إلى غاية 26 نوفمبر 2017 في قلب مدينة قصر دوجي تحت عنوان ‏"فيفا آرتي فيفا".‏ في إطار مشاركتها األولى في االحتفال بالفن اختارت تونس تسليط الضوء على موضوع الساعة الذي يشغل بالها : الهجرة البشرية.‏ حيث وضحت لنا لينا األزعر،‏ نائبة رئيس مؤسسة كمال األزعر ومنسقة المشروع : « أن الهجرة البشرية التي كانت في جميع أنحاء العالم رمزًا للتطور االجتماعي أصبحت اآلن مهددة بالحركات القومية الشعبوية.‏ خطاب تكريس االنقسام يركز على بناء الجدران،‏ ومراقبة الحدود،‏ ويجسد حالة مثيرة للقلق تعتبر اليوم طبيعية.‏ األزمة اإلنسانية الناجمة قد أصبحت ال تطاق وهي تقوض الجهود الرامية إلى حماية حقوق اإلنسان والبشرية ذاتها.‏ إن الهجرة الناتجة عن هذه األزمة وإعادة تقييم إنسانيتنا المشتركة،‏ في صميم المسائل المثارة في الجناح الوطني التونسي.‏ واألحداث الجانبية المعالجة بعناية في قلب الجناح ستشكل أساس تظاهرة .» تسعى إلى ترجمة الكلمات إلى أفعال و قد تمت مشاركة تونس في هذا الحدث برعاية رئاسة الجمهورية ووزارة الشؤون الثقافية ومجموعة كبيرة من المتبرعين التونسيين الذين دعموا هذا المشروع الذي جاء بناء عل مبادرة من مؤسسة كمال األزعر.‏ 61 I rencontre interview I encounters interview I ‫مقابلـة‬ ‫لقــاءات‬ I rencontre interview I encounters interview I ‫مقابلـة‬ ‫لقــاءات‬ Mehdi Ben cheikh Street Art passion Galerie Itinerrance is a site of cultural ferment, where artists from all walks of life meet and exhibit, but also a tremendous springboard for young talent.

MBC : I spent twenty years in Tunisia and twenty-two years in France. I studied plastic arts at La Sorbonne, to later become a fine arts professor. Meanwhile, I opened Galerie Itinerrance, in 2004. I also set up numerous projects outside the gallery, such as Tour Paris 13, Djerbahood, Earth Crisis at the Eiffel Tower, and Street Art 13, in Paris. adventure. A gallery could be a start, provided that this job is not limited only to selling works of art, but rather to be part of an artistic movement, and to try to write a small piece of history history, along with the artists I defend. In fact, I had already been gallery owners’ big fan, like Kahnweiler, Durand- Ruel, and Ambroise Vollard, who gave all their credentials to their passion for art. These visionaries, from the end of the nineteenth century to the 1960s, dared against all odds to defend artists they believed in, and to put their artistic intelligence at the service of a whole generation of artists, to the cost of their own interests.
