PRESENTATION OF THE COLLECTIVE
Since its creation (Berlin/2009), the company KOM.POST, a partner collective, is creating works inspired by problematics related to spectatorship towards radical site specific projects. By engaging a group of artists and theorists in a multidisciplinary creative process, this research group pays particular attention to the relationship between reception and contribution. In other words, the plurality of voices that constitute the artistic relationship. It embodies a vision linking art to society and re-examines consciously artistic practices anchored in contemporary issues, such as mobility, digital literacy or collective practices. Always inventing itself in regard to new and different contexts (geographical, societal, political), the collective's proposals are constantly rethinking their forms, tools and especially the transmission methods. The permanent attention to the audience, moves the Kom.post collective to the field of new reception forms, to new media, to stakes and limits of "participation" as an artistic mediation practice.
Through artistic and theoretical research projects (Fabrique du commun, Speech, Radio kom.post, sonosphères, autour de la table...), the Kom.post collective invents artistic participation dispositives that appeal to one's creativity and individual responsibility for the operating and questioning of an environment that all share.
PRESENTATION OF THE RESEARCH - PROJECT JE N'AI QU'UN TOIT DU CIEL, VOUS AUREZ DE LA PLACE
Je n’ai qu’un toit du ciel, vous aurez de la place is a series of transmedia radio plays, written in episodes, that questions the collective representations of the "infinite universe" and proposes a stories manufacturing machine. This story machine takes the shape of a radiophonic writing (web radios, partner broadcasting radios) that combines a fictional frame to raw documents (available on the blog associated with the radio and a paperback booklet distributed to the audience) and to live guests participants to take part in this cloze-fiction (on the theatre stage). From the myth of Icarus to a space tele novela: Yuri, Valentina, Neil and dog Laika will be the first characters of a fiction in which all are the authors, spectators and witnesses.
