13 May 2021 - 4 June 2021
Our modern societies have been built on the subjugation of a large part of beings and territories. Gender domination, worker exploitation, destruction of ecosystems… Until we reach the point of ruptures.
For this seemingly immutable order is beginning to crack. Major crises are stirring our world with great noise. Others, on the contrary, are manifesting themselves in a tenuous, discreet way, and suggest a future blooming. All seem to imply the existence of strong aspirations that could overturn the paradigms of omnipotence. And bring profound change. ‘Reset’ does not seek to minimize the seriousness of the current crises, nor to trivialize situations of distress or injustice. Nevertheless, it seemed necessary to show, without idealism or candor, that the world is changing and can still change.
