Les Sublimes Archive è un’archivio digitale, ispirato all’utopia parigina di fine ‘800 e al gruppo dei ‘Sublimi’ ³, nato con l’idea di portare l’attenzione sulla parte più pura, primaria e improduttiva della creazione artistica e della generazione di idee.
Dal 2015 Les Sublimes Archive raccoglie quaderni di appunti e note di artisti, filosofi, scienziati e ricercatori provenienti da varie discipline.
L’idea è di rendere consultabili i materiali più intimi del processo creativo che raramente sono accessibili e messi in mostra. Idee ‘nude’, altamente contagiose, poetiche e non ancora diventate opera(tive).
I quaderni sono esposti per un breve periodo prima di essere digitalizzati ed entrare a fare parte dell’archivio digitale lessublimes.org.

³ “I ‘Sublimi’ erano obiettori di crescita ante litteram. Denunciati dal patronato dell’epoca perché immorali, questi proletari che preferivano la festa al lavoro e si dimostravano incapaci di sottomettersi alla disciplina dell’officina non erano altro che portatori del punto di vista popolare sulla vita.” Serge Latouche, Ellul contro il totalitarismo tecnico, Jaca Book, 2014

lsalogo

‘Les Sublimes Archive’, inspired by the Parisian utopia at the end of the 19th century and the group Les Sublimes3, is a digital archive in progress that began in 2015. It is devoted to the most pure (or impure), primary and unproductive part of creation and the generation of ideas.

An archive of notebooks containing notes and jottings by artists, philosophers, scientists and researchers from various disciplines. The aim is to make available for consultation the most personal material associated with the creative process, which is rarely accessible and displayed. These are highly contagious, poetic, ‘bare’ ideas, that are not yet ‘work(ing)’.

They can be of any form or origin, but before they are digitized and added to the online archive they are be able to be consulted during special ‘events’ and exhibitions.

3)  The “sublimes” were railing against growth and overdevelopment long before the term was coined. Denounced by the Establishment as immoral, these working-class men and women – who put play before work and squirmed relentlessly free of the disciplined factory life – were guilty of no more than espousing the popular view of the age.¹
