Une autre conspiration is the second phase of an exchange programme between the Hochschule Für Grafik und Buchkunst of Leipzig (HGB) and the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts of Lyon (Ensba Lyon). This programme was set up by the two art schools in the context of the historical relationship that exists between these twin towns.
From September 2014 to January 2015, it produced the Conspirations, quelles conspirations ? exhibition that brought together the work of 17 young French and German artists in the Kunsthalle of the Sparkasse in Leipzig, curated by Joachim Blank (HGB) and Philippe Durand (ENSBA Lyon).
In resonance with the 2015 Biennial of Lyon, this year a double exhibition is being presented, from November 20th, 2015 to January 16th, 2016, in the BF15 and the Réfectoire des nonnes, the exhibition gallery of the Ensba Lyon.
In collaboration with the Goethe Institute of Lyon, the curatorship of this exhibition has been entrusted to Perrine Lacroix, artist and Director of the BF15, Joachim Blank, artist and teacher in the HGB in Leipzig and Philippe Durand, artist and teacher in the ENSBA Lyon.
This year, 12 young French and German artists are participating in this project, one that is concerned with private, artistic and political forms of conspiracy.
The production seminar at the Moly Sabata Residency, in June 2015, allowed the artists to develop a work around notions of the cult, ritual and religion, over a background of conspiracy, and also to deal with notions of group and community. They are interested in the regulation of access to knowledge and question the omnipresence of the secret society in political, religious and societal spheres.
A publication, created by the Graphic Design students of the ENSBA Lyon, will accompany the exhibition.
In addition, an intersecting residency has been established between Lyon and Leipzig. Having welcomed young artist, Anaëlle Vanel for a two month residency at the end of 2014, Leipzig will now host the young French artist, Tom Castinel, for a residency from May to July, 2015. The young German artist Peggy Pehl will join the Lyonnais residency of the Attrape-Couleur from September to December in 2015.
