Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 0RN

âLes ImmatÃriauxâ curated principally by philosopher Jean-FranÃois Lyotard at the Centre Georges Pompidou, held its private views on 27-28 March 1985. We celebrate its thirtieth anniversary, following conferences in Dusseldorf (2014 Dusseldorf Quadriennale), LÃneburg and in conjunction with a conference in Paris. A pioneering combination of technological experiment, âLes ImmatÃriauxâ involved the first âpersonalâ computers, art works, a pick-up literary sound-track following the installation and electronic music. Great philosophers and artists were involved with the âwriting experimentâ. The two-volume catalogue, a record of curatorial meetings and other reflections, was also experimental.
Les ImmatÃriaux follows Lyotardâs publication of 1979, La condition postmoderne, and its translation into English as The Postmodern Condition in 1984. A celebration of what Lyotard called âtechnoscienceâ, 'Les ImmatÃriauxâ was the very antithesis of the âprimitivistâ, earth-bound aesthetic of âMagiciens de la Terreâ the much vaunted show which followed in 1989, the year when the long Cold War ended, and an anticipation of the global art world today. Our conference will unite veteran artists, philosophers and curators of âLes ImmatÃriauxâ from the Centre Pompidou with scholars and artists of today.

Organised by Professor Sarah Wilson (The Courtauld Institute of Art)

This event was made possible by the generous support of the Institut FranÃais
