As part of the established cycle Comment ça va?, which film expert and curator Pascale Cassagnau has been programming for over 5 years, LOOP and the Zumzeig present a session entirely dedicated to Jean-Luc Godard. Centred on Godard’s relationship with art at large, the screening feature two short films that relate to the much discussed 2006’s exhibition Voyage(s) en utopie, JLG, 1946-2006, à la recherche d’un théorème perdu (Centre Pompidou, 11 May – 4 August 2006). Reportage amateur (maquette expo) shows a cardboard maquette made for the show from the most humble materials and it suggests and ambitious dialogue between cinema, painting and literature. Made a few months after, Souvenir d’Utopie presents the maquette with tighter, static shots, without commentary, punctuated with cuts to black.
