Everything is a network. This exhibition will bring together some sixty artists, architects, and designers. It will question the place of the network in today's society, dominated by social networks and the dematerialization of the virtual network itself. More than ever, the network, in the age of the Internet—this "network of networks"—is at the heart of technological changes and societal issues (surveillance society, omnipresence of social networks, atomization of the individual, actor-network). But the initial network is also that of the living, which links species together, generating new forms of "connections".

Făbrĭca (from the Latin word meaning workshop but also the action of working, making, doing, producing) is a virtual musical space designed by composer Giulia Lorusso, computer music designer Benjamin Lévy, and graphic designer Giovanni Muzio. They invite the public at the exhibition "Réseaux-Mondes" to navigate freely through this three-dimensional graphic universe that links musical development and movement through space. By tracing their own journey online, visitors compose the relationships between the sound elements and the visual architectures and thereby determine the evolution of the musical discourse.
Produced during different lockdowns and premiered in concert in 2021 by the ensemble C Barré, Făbrĭca explores the ideas of a work-process, of a collaborative work carried out remotely, of sharing the role of author, of performer, of audience,a nd of a non-linear musical discourse.
