    Eternal Tour

    From September 3rd to 13th, Eternal Tour will correlate Contemporary Art with the Humanities. After Rome in 2008, before Jerusalem in 2010, and upon invitation by the CAN (Centre d’art Neuchâtel) and the Centre culturel du Val-de-Travers, this year the festival will present its second edition in Neuchâtel, the Val-de-Travers, la Chaux-de-Fonds and the Locle.

    Blending music, video, radio, tales, exhibitions, guided tours and symposiums, Eternal Tour is for everyone. The festival questions 21st century cosmopolitanism:

    How to live in the world?

    How to reason the world in a dynamic and critical manner?

    ET chose to experiment with these questions in partnership with the canton’s institutions by integrating them into local problems.

    In this approach, three themes emerge: Diderot and d’Alembert’s Encyclopaedia, Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s work, and Orientalism. These themes will be an integral part of the festival and the ensuing publication on it.

    What will the invited artists do with all this? Come get the answer this September with Kader Attia, curating an exhibition at the Centre d’Art Neuchâtel, Claire Fontaine’s installation at the Caves du Palais, Marco Berrettini and his self-portrait or Sandra Amodio’s performance.
