The twenty-six videos selected for this video library include documentary and fictional works, ranging from animated films to experimental pieces and performance videos. They explore, with varying degrees of humour or sense of tragedy, our confusion in the face of the failure of the utopias that succeeded each other up until the close of the twentieth century. This project is thus an
invitation to reflect on how we can, within this context, envisage inventing
a possible future or imagine new models for change.
