In 1971, my father bought a Volkswagen T1 equiped by Westfalia. It has been our mobile summer house for more than a decade and shaped a large part of who I am today. The van is still in my possession and I am transforming it into an itinerant school for visual literacy to share the immense chance I had to free my curiosity and gaze on the world combined with the thrill of going towards the unknown my parents offered to me.
The boudoirmobile© will propose :
Nomad decryption workshops targeting youngsters, families and educators
A unique concept of take away exhibition to be revealed soon
Mobile artist's residencies
The boudoirmobile© will travel through Europe and more. Its itinerary will be fixed in order to meet the agenda of major photography based events, festivals and exhibitions.
As we wish to bring photography, contemporary art and the questions they raise closer to people, the boudoirmobile© will target major photography festivals, schools and summer camps and any other place of family gathering (amusement parks, shopping malls, campings etc).
The boudoirmobile© promotes a visual literacy adapted to the contemporary uses of photography and of social networks. It aims to develope a critical view on images and a deontology of their circulation in order to foster social relationships based on respect, equity, emulation, transmission, share, care and fight against stereotypes.
The boudoirmobile© project also aims to promote the photographer as a responsible figure of our society.
We believe that those who want to change the world
first have to see it in all its complex and complementary facets.
By building our business plan on mecenat, partnerships and sponsorship, we want to foster and make visible a fairer distribution of wealth driving money from where it is to where it is needed. We want artists to receive a reasonable fee, the audience to pay an affordable fare and the donors to be associated to a project based on fair trade and social ecology.
We don’t want to show you the world, we want you to love it.
The schedule and the sponsoring
We are working hard to be ready for Les Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie of Arles 2016 but time is running and we would need funds to go faster. As alternative target, we head to a release for Gazebook, in Sicily, sept. 2016.
Symbol of freedom, social consciousness, edgy design and dreams of a better future, the boudoirmobile© will offer to its sponsors a valorizing and truly contemporary visibility by offering an original ad support and being associated with up-to-date and critical knowledge on art, photography and images.
We are launching right now a funding campaign among selected enterprises : ethical banks, organic shops, camping goods retailers and makers, mobile network providers etc.
