MUDSC: Même un détour serait correct - translated: ‘Even a detour would be all right’ is a poetic expedition into urban sprawl and gated communities, those private cities of our new world where the fear of the others is pushed to the extreme. Those are the places where surveillance cameras, remote controlled doors and security guards have become the new necessities of this life sheltered from life itself. In this topography of conflict there is also the hope to find a neutral ground to build or to rebuild a livable space.

MUDSC contains 18 videos poems: • Animer • Baissez-nous • La Banlieue • Les Bungalows • Couper • Cribler • Disparaître • Envelopper • La Fin Du Monde • Le Sac • Couvrir • Précipiter • Rechauffer : version canola • Rechauffer : version condos • Le Point de fuite • Suffire • Tomber • Le Traffic
