Transparency & Opacity

Ilan Manouach comes from comics, Franck Leibovici comes from poetry: two different artistic backgrounds, with their own histories and signifying potentials. Comics is considered a vernacular form of cultural expression, while poetry is usually perceived as a hermetic, if not elitist activity open to the very few initiated ones. Through notions of opacity and transparency, Manouach and Leibovici will discuss about the ethical and aesthetic considerations of giving the reader access to the protocols of a work and the ways of doing things, and will question how their respective backgrounds makes them face specific resistances in their medium but also allows them to think differently about established notions, and best practices in their relation with their audience and readership.
