The second edition, after Faux Amis in 2010, of the Ephemeral Video Library project, Inventing the Possible, questions the invention of a possible future or a utopian future. Selected videos explore in varying degrees humor or feeling for tragedy, our perplexity in the face the failure of modernity’s utopias, inviting us to reflect, within that context, on the possibility of finding models of change. Conceived as a mixed, open installation, it enables the public to watch videos freely on individual screens and also to discover these same works projected on a large screen. 26 artists present videos realized over the past ten years in very varied contexts and regions. These works invite viewers to invent new possible alternatives. With Edgardo Aragón Díaz, Yto Barrada, Eric Baudelaire, Ursula Biemann, Wim Catrysse, Martin Le Chevallier, Declinación Magnética, Theo Eshetu, Mahdi Fleifel, Yang Fudong, Sirah Foighel Brutmann and Eitan Efrat, Peter Friedl, Pauline Horovitz, Marine Hugonnier, Hayoun Kwon, Naeem Mohaiemen, Wendy Morris, Carlos Motta, Els Opsomer, Daniela Ortiz & Xosé Quiroga, Anxiong Qiu, Khvay Samnang, Allan Sekula, Hito Steyerl, Atsushi Wada, Artur Żmijewski
