We are not the number we think we are
An Arts & Sciences event to imagine the future!
An event of the Daniel & Nina Carasso Foundation in partnership with the “arts & sciences” Chair, founded by the École polytechnique / École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs – PSL / Daniel & Nina Carasso Foundation and the Cité internationale des arts.
“We are not the number we think we are” will offer a unique experience for 36 hours non-stop, involving hundreds of artists, researchers and thinkers from various geographical and disciplinary backgrounds. At the heart of the project, a variety of people and collectives will gather temporarily to discuss the pressing issues of our world. They will take over multiple spaces within the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, a meeting ground open to the dialogue between cultures, where visitors will be invited to reflect on the present and map together pathways for the future. The common thread of this boundless program is the fictional world of The Compass Rose (1982) a book of short stories by science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin.
