A Walk through the Supermarket of Images

Doctor in Contemporary Art History at Université Paris 1, a specialist in American art of the 1960s, Sandra Delacourt is also a critic, interrogating the relationships between regimes of visibility of our present history and the knowledge enabling us to grasp this history. She covers a vast field of disciplinary practices – from anthropology to natural history, from philosophy to the history of techniques – and her research in art never fails to reveal the transversality running through these, as she traces their relationship in the context of globalized capitalism. With a concrete approach inspired by Michel Foucault, and in an ongoing perceptive confrontation with artworks, she untangles power structures linking knowledge to our ways of seeing, and develops a critical discourse that places our modes of both perceiving and contemplating objects and actions on hold. In this perspective, this Meeting Point with Sandra Delacourt sketches out a path through “The Supermarket of Images” and the issues it raises at the crossroads of disciplines, from the economic constraints it questions to the political outcomes it presents.
