"Kadist art foundation and Rockbund presents a talk on how a residency at a given context activates curatorial experimentation. The director of Para/Site, Hong Kong, Cosmin Costinas will give a talk on the curatorial project 'Like an Attali Report, but different', an exhibition on fiction and political imagination which Costinas developed as a curator-in-residence in Kadist Foundation Paris.
The Attali Report (or the Report of the Commission for the Liberation of French Growth), commissioned by President Sarkozy, was published in 2007, provoking a long series of discussions, mainly confined to the French public arena and mainly focused on the report’s concrete proposals, set to implement a neoliberal model for the French economy and society. The exhibition which took place at Kadist was neither about the Attali Report nor was it a report itself. It nonetheless, tried to unfold fictions and images that offer an insight on different narratives that have been overlapping for the past decades in our thinking of politics, at different times and in different localities.
