"How can we stay grounded when everything is shaking around us? Perhaps precisely by making our own this awareness of disequilibrium, of doubt, this opening of a critical space for analysis and reflection, this distancing from authority that non-knowledge permits. The university is a place of research, the human and social sciences a framework to question knowledge, and the artists emissaries who allow different viewpoints to emerge."
- Sarah Dessaint, Head of the Rennes 2 Cultural Office and Equality Officer
What can you expect from the 2022-2023 offering?
This year, like years before, the Rennes 2 Cultural Office proudly invites you to discover this season's program.
See which topics will be discussed during the new cycle of Equality Tuesdays, or dive into the strange, colorful, mystical and political worlds of the photographic artists to be exhibited this year. In the field of performing arts, while the forms and themes vary constantly, we will again be offering concerts, theater, dance, screenings, meetings... all the while tackling social, political and aesthetic issues.
So don't hesitate to join us as we step into the artists' views of our world. Voluntarily militant, this year's events will surely questions our relationship with what surrounds us.
