The screenings program "A Sweet Taste of Conspiracy" features international artists for whom the video extends or includes a pictorial, sculptural, performative or poetic practice. Inspired by genre cinema, science fiction, and romantic TV show imagery, in addition to the language of advertising, media and internet culture, their videos stem from experimentation of forms and a hybridization of materials and influences. Using diversion and subversion of cultural codes, the films presented create alternative narratives driven by a secret agreement. They interpret tales, myths, ancestral knowledge and folklore of the plot within an emotional or amusing way. Tacit connections are developed between a global market economy and an underground animism; between spiritualities and the use of technologies, between networks and plant or animal intelligences. As the signs spread, doubt gradually appears in stories previously told.
