School of Spontaneity Interview with Vincent Epplay on his film Atelier des sons et expressions spontanées

by Vincent Epplay

Summary

The film Atelier des sons & expressions spontanées is a free interpretation of the experimental artistic practices undertaken in schools in the 1960s and 70s, in particular sound experimentations conducted with schoolchildren as part of the Freinet pedagogical method. The film is documented by a collection of audio archives (vinyl 45’s) and magazines (Art Enfantin) published by the Institut coopératif de l’école moderne (ICEM, Freinet method), a rather exhaustive collection reunited specifically for this project. These sound archives, replayed especially for the occasion and juxtaposed with film scenes of diverse origins, generate a kind of joyful ambient chaos, offering a phantasmagorical account of these pedagogical excursions into utopian experiments that hoped to counteract the monotony and boredom in schools.
