Who said art and sport had nothing to do with each other? To mark the passage of the Olympic flame through Montbéliard on the 19th, Crac is offering everyone a sporty and fun performance by Clara Gensburger.

Practices of sabotage Assemble, atelier paysan, Mathilde Chénin & Pierre Lamard

L’École d’été, a series of meetings for artists and art professionals, explores the practice of sabotage and questions its potential to transform our institutions. In keeping with the exhibition Blood in the Machine by the Assemble collective, on show at the art centre, the Summer School will be looking at practices of “common use” with Mathilde Chénin, artist-researcher; the history of tools in the Montbéliard conurbation with Pierre Lamard, historian; and putting technological hacking practices into practice with a workshop run by Assemble in conjunction with the Atelier Paysan. From understanding the history of local production methods to investigating the bioregion and reflecting on collective intelligence, the Summer School aims to share the region’s resources and look to the future.
