Short Description:

Ioanna Neophytou’s PhD thesis in plastic arts, conducted at Aix-Marseille University (Laboratoire d’Études en Sciences des Arts – LESA), was accompanied by an exhibition of the major works of the artist. Her research titled “The war of images and the images of war: Documentary and contemporary art in the necropolitics era” questions the politics of visibility of contemporary warfare since the 1990s in the fields of documentary and contemporary art.
In relation to her research, the exhibition Jeux de Guerre, brings together the most important works of the artist since her first exhibition at Archives Nationales (France, 2015), up to the most recent documentary creations. The installations and video documentaries presented suggest gestures, positions, and ideas around the topics of war and violence, revealing simultaneously a resilient potential.
