Here, the Artists they want to point out that our world is constantly saturated with images Today more than three billion images are shared every day on social networks

This exhibition is based on a book which has the same title. Here, they want to point out that our world is constantly saturated with images. Their number is growing so exponentially - today more than three billion images are shared every day on social networks - that the space of visibility seems to be literally overwhelmed. As if there were no more space, no more interstices. Faced with such an overproduction of images, the question of their storage, management, transport (even if electronic) and the routes they follow, their weight, the fluidity or viscosity of their exchanges, their fluctuating values - in short, the question of their economy - arises more than ever. The works chosen for "The supermarket of images" take an incisive look at these issues. On one hand, they reflect on the upheavals currently affecting the economy in general, such as with cryptomony, for example. But, on the other hand, these works also question the future of visibility in the era of globalization: we are faced with an incessant circulation of images. In the supermarket that is exhibited here, in short, the images of the economy speak each time of the economy of the image.
