We are pleased to announce the winner 2022, soon in residence at Camargo, Óscar Vincentelli (Venezuela) for the creation of a fiction "Se Van sus naves".
Following the return to Europe of the first Columbus expedition, two Eyerís Indian twins named Bohique and Guaba arrive in Spain using the technology of foreign ships, making them the first Americans to set foot on European soil. Both the Eyerís and the sailors are confined by Pinzón, the Captain of the ship, in houses far from the village while he notifies the Catholic monarchs of the expedition's return. Everyone celebrates the return home while waiting for the Captain, but the twins have a mission to accomplish: to fertilize the land of the strangers. To do this, Guaba must die and become a seed that Bohique must retrieve and plant. Guaba's spirit guides Rui Gallego and his brother, the only witnesses to his death, to find the seed. The Eyerís teach the sailors the conucos technique, the Eyerí seeding method. Once the seed of his twin is collected, Bohique plants it. A solar eclipse plunges the world into darkness. In the darkness, a root begins to grow.

[Announcement] Publication by Ben Stoltzfus
We are pleased to announce the publication of Ben Stoltzfus' book: D.H. Lawrence's Final Fictions: A Lacanian Perspective. The result of several years of research, the first stages of writing were worked on at the Camargo Foundation during residencies in the 1980s.
ABOUT THIS BOOK
D.H. Lawrence's Final Fictions: A Lacanian Perspective explores how literature thinks; more specifically, how the reading of fiction influences behavior. In this book, Stoltzfus examines the poetics of seven major fictions that Lawrence wrote between 1925 and 1930, five productive years that are referred to as his fabulation period. In each of the book's seven chapters, in tandem with Lacan's writings, Stoltzfus analyzes seven major characters, four of whom move from alienation to the renewal of self and the cosmos. He argues that Lawrence's fiction is simultaneously descriptive and prescriptive by showing us how to circumvent dysfunction. Stoltzfus brings literature and psychoanalysis together in readings that are both aesthetic and epistemological. They are recipes for curing the Anthropocene.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ben Stoltzfus is professor emeritus of comparative literature, creative writing, and French at the University of California, Riverside. He has been a resident at the Camargo Foundation on several occasions, including helping to write the Camargo Notebooks during the 2020 lockdown.
[Workshop] History in the Making - Camargo's archival project
A year ago, the Camargo Foundation launched an archival project aiming to preserve Camargo's history and legacy.
Since then, we have collected some remarkable material, which illuminates the impact of Camargo on residents' personal and professional lives while deepening our understanding of the organization’s history and legacy.
Last summer, a new collaboration was launched with curator Jean Pierre Moulères, Aix Marseille University/Telemme Laboratory, and the National School of Photography in Arles (ENSP).
• Aix-Marseille University (AMU) is the largest multidisciplinary French-speaking university in France, with 80,000 students and nearly 8,000 staff on five large campuses, which meet international standards. The university is present in 9 cities in 4 departments of the Southern Region.
• The ENSP is a higher education institution under the supervision of the French Ministry of Culture, located in Arles in the south of France, a city renowned for its photographic culture.
As a result, a group of students from both schools coordinated by scholars and Camargo’s staff have started working on a workshop project, which will take place in March. At Camargo, they will work together on documenting the memory and testimonies of Cassis’ community.
