Native Land, Stop Eject

39.50 €

The exhibition Native Land, Stop Eject, organized by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in 2008, presented filmmaker and photographer Raymond Depardon, and urban planner and philosopher Paul Virilio, who proposed a reflection on the notions of “taking root” in a given place, and of being “uprooted.” It also attempted to address the questions of identity that are linked to these notions.
The catalog Native Land, Stop Eject offers a chance to explore the problematics raised in the exhibition. It demonstrates Raymond Depardon’s affective, identity-based approach as he explores the continents meeting people attached to their land and language. Paul Virilio’s reflection on human paths and movements in today’s world is developed in a previously unpublished text, entitled Stop Eject, backed by a selection of significant images that form a veritable visual stream.

Raymond Depardon

Filmmaker, photographer and international journalist, Raymond Depardon, born in 1942 in Villefranche-sur-Saône, holds a unique place in the field of the contemporary image. In 1967, he co-founded the Gamma Agency, and in 1978, he joined the Magnum Agency for whom he would carry out reports all over the world up until the beginning of the 1980s. While continuing to practice photography on a daily basis, he later turned his attention to documentary film, making use of the direct cinema genre, including the Profils paysans trilogy: L’Approche, Le Quotidien and La Vie moderne (2001-2008).

He was director of the Institute for Cultural Philosophy at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna from 1989 to 2008.

Peter Sloterdijk is the author of many books and essays, including “Rules for the Human Park” and “The Domestication of Human Beings” (in J. Koltan [ed.], Solidarity and the Crisis of Trust, Gdánsk: European Solidarity Centre, 2016, pp. 79–93), and Making the Heavens Speak (Cambridge: Polity Press, 2022).
