Chiara Gallerani et Maurizio Lazzarato, «Paresser»

Thursday, June 7, 2018, at 07 PM, Free entrance


Conferences directed by Jérôme Mauche

This “Poésie Plate-forme” session offers a meeting between dancer and performer Chiara Gallerani and philosopher and sociologist Maurizio Lazzarato.

Marcel Duchamp remarks somewhere that while “John Cage boasts of having introduced silence into music, I'm proud of having celebrated laziness in art”. Chiara Gallerani and Maurizio Lazzarato conceive laziness as a way of life, a relationship with time, but also a strategy for understanding, and maybe for action.


Chiara Gallerani      

Chiara Gallerani has been living and working in Paris since the early 1990s. She is a self-taught contemporary dancer, and more broadly a performer, who has collaborated with a number of choreographers and artists like Paco Dècina, Georges Appaix, Marco Berrettini, Laurent Goldring, Édouard Levé, Claudia Triozzi, Judith Cahen, Sabine Macher, Joris Lacoste, François Chaignaud, Cecilia Bengolea, Mickaël Phelippeau and Xavier Leroy. Since 2014, she has been collaborating regularly with Jérôme Bel for the Gala show and other projects.

Maurizio Lazzarato   

Maurizio Lazzarato is a philosopher and sociologist. He lives and works in Paris. He recently conducted research on debt (The Making of the Indebted Man: Essay on the Neoliberal Condition, Semiotext(e), 2012; Governing by Debt, Semiotext(e), 2015), on “laziness” in Duchamp’s work (Marcel Duchamp and the Refusal of Work, Semiotext(e), 2014) and on wars and revolutions (Wars and Capital, written with Eric Alliez, Semiotext(e), 2018).
