The Bamboche is Over !
In the context of Tony Regazzoni’s solo exhibition On achève bien les discos.
La bamboche, c’est terminé ! is a conference dedicated to festive practices in peripheral and rural areas. The desertion and closure of discotheques, the dematerialization of dance floors, the withdrawal into the domestic sphere, the political future of these dedicated spaces : is the party really over ? Throughout the afternoon, meetings and discussions will take stock of the state of the party, from the countryside to the outskirts of large urban centers, from its social dimension to an anthropological vision, including the perspective of the future Roaring Twenties. These discussions will be moderated by Arnaud Idelon with the assistance of Aurélie Faure.
