Cercle 3

Cercle: Ready for Action

Cercle are a brilliantly radical force in event creation and curation: constantly redefining what can be done in this space, and effortlessly dissolving boundaries between instutional art, underground culture, technology and other worlds. This keynote is a true meeting of minds featuring Cercle CEO and founder Derek Barbolla in conversation with Mathieu Glissant, a director of photography at Cercle and professor of cinema at the Sorbonne, and Boris Brejcha, the artist who recently created a show with Cercle in Paris’s Grand Palais RMN to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. The trio will be digging deep into the raison d’être and modus operandi of Cercle to demonstrate how they manage to adapt shows to every possible (and unexpected) situation and location thanks to a small, agile team and a minimalist approach to filming and producing events. They will also be discussing how the multiple strategic choices they made around a shared passion led to a special and viable business model
