Digital social networks: communication, promotion and regulation
Digital social networks : communication, promotion and regulation Digital social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) have taken a fundamental place in interpersonal, political and economic communication, replacing traditional modes of communication. The rapid emergence of digital social networks raises many questions about their power, the capture of a communication monopoly by a few companies, current and future economic models to enhance and monetize social networks. The objective of this interdisciplinary seminar is to bring together economists, sociologists, political scientists and computer scientists around the issue of digital social networks, to better understand the issues, dangers, developments, and discuss regulatory policies to control the negative effects. The seminar will focus on three key questions:
– Dissemination of information and economic and political communication on social networks
– Social media monetization and digital platform business models
– The protection of personal data on digital social networks

Why does the art market fascinate the media and the general public so much ? Euphoric or exasperated, the passions aroused by the sensational prices achieved at auction do not wane, record after record, both for the masters of the past and for contemporary artists – just think of the Salvador Mundi, attributed to Leonardo Vinci, sold to an anonymous buyer for $450 million in 2017 and which was recently the subject of a documentary. It is that the millions exchanged for works are not enough to dispel the idea that art should escape the ordinary economy. For some, the figure of the disinterested artist, living for his art but “recovered” by the market system, remains a living representation; for others, the artist has on the contrary become a genius strategist, driven by the lure of profit, quick to take advantage of the credulity and snobbery of wealthy amateur kingmakers. Rejecting these caricatures, constantly updated, our project at the Fondation des Treilles aims to restore the complexity, the historical depth of the art markets and the place of the artist within them.

Photography Residency : Alain Fleischer
His project : Photographic interpretation of Ovid’s “Metamorphoses”.
Through processes and techniques specific to photography, with its ability to transform reality through the manipulation of light and its imprint, thanks to shots both in natural settings and in the studio, it will be to produce a series of images inspired by the long Latin poem. The photographs will be made using a mixture of techniques, with the presence of characters. The results will result in large-format color prints, forming an aesthetically and thematically homogeneous series. [find out more].

Love and care between humans: new interdisciplinary perspectives – seminar organized by Nathalie Zaccaï-Reyners, Claire Marin and Frédéric Worms.
The seminar intended to question the way love make a difference to live and think care. At the heart of our ties to others, whatever they may be – humans, animals, objects, landscapes… – as to ourselves, we encounter an affective dimension that we may relate to love.
What do recent advances in different scientific disciplines tell us about this dimension, but also in the wake of research related to the ethics of care or empirical ethics, recent debates in moral and political philosophy, sociology and psychology? What do literature, cinema and the visual arts teach us about the links between love and care? It was to problematize this link between love and care, in its tensions and in its ethical and political dimensions as well as in the relation to their opposites, also so human (mistreatment and hatred), that this seminar was dedicated.
It brought together philosophers, sociologists, psychologists and psychoanalysts, physicians and artists, including a young researcher.
It is supported by the International Seminar of Studies on Care, an interdisciplinary and international group founded in 2010 that consider the question of care as a constitutive dimension of human life, its practices and its multiple issues not only in the medical and health fields but also in the political field, social practices and moral relations as they may be seen by the human and social sciences and the arts. Its work is published in a collection collectively directed at the PUF: the “Questions de soin” (29 volumes published in September 2022). [find out more]
