L’écriture dans la pratique des artistes algériens de 1962 à nos jours.

Abstract : This thesis seeks to shed new light on the practices of Algerian artists from 1962 to the present day by examining the connection between writings and works of art, whether in the interweaving of words in the artistic work such as the titles, the autonomy of the artists’ writing, or the collaborative practices of artists and writers. Drawing from a corpus of work consisting of tutelary figures of the post-independence period such as Mohammed Khadda, Choukri Mesli, or Denis Martinez, of artists from the 1990s such as Adel Abdessemed, Kader Attia, or Rachid Koraïchi, and the young generation represented by Yasser Ameur, Walid Bouchouchi, or Souad Douibi, our objective is to question the connections between historic events and writing in artistic practices. At first, during the years which follow the independence and the will to become emancipated established colonial, as is set up a new "Algerian art", we observe a way of envisaging the writing, either as reactivation of the (national) past, that is as vector of Arabisation, as claiming of linguistic diversity, or as a quest of abstraction. It is then a question, for the period from 1988 to 2000, to examinate the peculiarities of a writing of exile and the naming the works abroad by insisting in particularly on the foreignness and the identity claiming with the Sufism. Finally, from 2000, a new artistic scene emerging in Algeria. As an object of transmission, writing in art is increasingly used in a global context leading to a moment when the circulation of artists and works changes of scale. This new connection to writing is envisaged in a comparative perspective with Morocco and Tunisia.
