Who are we really?

The "NeoConsortium" project is an artistic project initiated by Caroline Duclos and Danielle Gutman Hopenblum in 2014. The NeoConsortium is a fictional global company that produces contemporary art as irregular polyhedrons called Moduloform.

This fiction is developed by a group of visual artists, designers, engineers, etc... Any media is valid (installation, performance, drawing, sculpture, photo, software, writing, etc.), the scope of the project is enriched by the diversity of its contributors.

The artwork produced in the framework of this project, documents the alleged production or the imaginary functioning of a company, while it is being invented. Each piece of art contributes to the development of this fiction.
Each exhibit is an opportunity to engage in new issues. In addressing a wide variety of domains in which we are involved, we relate and explore the multiple aspects of the project.

All media are valid, it is the variety of the contributors that enhances the scope of the project.

All productions are collected and brought together on this site.

Thanks

We would like to express our gratitude to Monsanto, Bayer, Nestlé, IBM, Apple, Volkswagen, Bouygues, Total, Coca-Cola, MacDonald's, Disney, Nike etc., which are a daily source of wonder and an endless source of inspiration.
