More than 4000 documents (videos of artists, documentaries on art, exhibitions catalogs, monographs etc..) are available for consultation.
The Documentation Center of Heure Exquise ! has one of the biggest collection on the visual arts, from the beginnings of the video creation to today, in France.
It is one of the rare places in the region but also in France, where teachers, students and researchers can come to work on the works and books relating to the video creation (most of these books are also, on the other side, sold out).
The collection enriched according to the contemporary creation events, but also according to the schools and university curriculums.
The magazines and festivals catalogs are completing this collection by providing information on new trends in video creation, digital creation and the dedicated exhibition spaces.
In collaboration with teachers, Heure Exquise ! organizes meetings and projections at the attention to the students.
Heure Exquise’s team can propose a program of videos to the teachers accorded to the training, the topics covered in their courses.
Examples of topics :
Introduction to the Video Art
Hybridisation and dramatization of the body in the video
The clues of the self
City, town-planning and environment
The projection takes place at the Fort de Mons, the municipality of Mons-en-Baroeul puts at Heure Exquise’s disposal a screening room for up to 90 people. The room must be booked by us with the council, it is therefore imperative to contact us at least 15 days before the hoped projection day.
