Temps d’Images International
Initiated in 2002 by the ARTE French television channel and La Ferme du Buisson, Temps d’Images was born out of the idea that the world of movements and performing arts cannot be separated and constantly interact when technology can serve as a bridge, not an obstacle. What new ways can we find to build bridges between performances and video in contemporary art when the boundary between arts is more and more uncertain? Temps d’Images was created to respond to these creations and to innovating themes, extending itself in numerous cities. From 2003 Temps d’Images became an European network.
ARTE was founded as a European public television channel specialized in cultural programs in 1991 through a partnership between France and Germany. The channel is operating since 1992 and gained its international popularity through many co-productions and through purchasing of movies, documentaries, performances from all over the world.
ARTE’s activities has encouraged artists from all over Europe and captivated every different public. Temps d’Images is the first festival created by a television channel.
