Colloque international – Musée de Sousse – 6-7-8 mars 2020 – L’inachevé dans les arts

Les 6, 7 et 8 mars prochain, la ville de Sousse (Tunisie) abritera un colloque international qui se penchera, à travers les communications d’artistes et d’experts de plusieurs pays, sur une question de plus en plus prégnante dans le monde des arts : qu’entendons-nous aujourd’hui par “œuvre inachevée” ou “work in progress” ?

Organisé par le Centre international de recherche et de documentation sur les arts vivants et l’Unité de recherche sur les esthétiques et les pratiques des arts de Sousse, ce colloque international, qui se tiendra les 6, 7 et 8 mars prochain à Sousse, en Tunisie, se penchera sur une question de plus en plus prégnante dans le monde des arts : qu’entendons-nous aujourd’hui par “œuvre inachevée” ou “work in progress” ? Le «non finito» dans l’art, s’il avait eu du temps, de Michel Ange, un aspect anecdotique, achève aujourd’hui de constituer une véritable mouvance tant dans les galeries d’art, les fabriques du livre, le 7e art, les arts dramatiques avec des appellations souvent confondantes, devenues presque consacrées : esquisse, story bord, rushes, work in process, mise en bouche, mise en espace, première (en parlant de théâtre), œuvre en devenir.

Hospitality is a complex, paradoxical concept whose etymology foregrounds an aporia. Derived from hostis, the foreigner and potential enemy, the hospes or host welcomes the guest, implying an intricate relationship between receiver and received, insider and outsider, as well as a compensatory relation since both hospes and hostis derive from the Latin verb hostire: “to treat as equal,” “to compensate,” “to pay back” (Grassi 35). The foreigner shifts from the position of an endangered, alienated subject to one who is included within the protective folds of the polis and the home. In welcoming the other, the host not only shares his home and power, but also entitles the guest (if only temporarily) to his own power as despot—etymologically, “the master of the house who lays down the laws of hospitality” (Derrida 149)—while reasserting his own domination. As a result, the commutative essence of the relationship between host and guest—whereby, as René Schérer argues, the host “acknowledges, through and thanks to the figure of the guest, his own exilic self” (40)—is perpetually jeopardized. In Claude Raffestin’s formulation, “hospitality is a right that warrants the transgression of limits without entailing violence” (166; qtd. Grassi 23).
