Power and its multiple displays controls and directs all the aspects of our society.
Power no power is a workshop carried out with some pupils of a primary school at the surroundings of Paris that responds a complex suggestion in a very simple way: Imagine you have power. Their answers become the basis of a cinematographic project that articulates as an agreed work-in-progress between the teenagers and Claudio Zulian. But also as a tale that tells us about the world of desire and concerns those teenagers, often powerless, have.
Power no power is a cross-disciplinary project developed in collaboration with the Jeu de Paume in Paris, which hosted a retrospective of Claudio Zulian’s work and also released this new project.
