David Bergé and Ilan Manouach
A Distinct Effort is a lecture, developed by David Bergé within his series Voyage d’Orient. In Voyage d’Orient, the formative journey from 1911 by August Klipstein and Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (the future Le Corbusier) is taken as a starting point to reflect on what this journey would mean today.
Ilan Manouach will introduce a selection of his conceptual comics and will give some insight information about their production and the discussions raised by these books.
A short discussion will follow.
Ilan Manouach is a conceptual comics artist, a book publisher and a musician. He is also the inventor and the thinking mind behind the tactile language Shapereader, a project that begs for the coercive agency of fingertips towards universal tactile cognizance, whose workshops and exhibitions have been scheduled in more than twenty countries.
David Bergé’s practice deals with the physicality of built environment and changing territories today and materializes in the form of immersive arts: silent Walk Pieces, durational photo installations, performative talks and publications. Bergé lives and works in Athens and Brussels.
