Nuit debout, Première approche du régime de visualité d’une scène nocturne

Abstract : In 2016, the « Nuit débout » movement took over public space in numerous French towns and cities. Rather than representing the colonization of night by light and commerce, and lacking the controlled security or event-marketing of “Nuit blanche”, these demonstrations quite remarkably allowed for a rediscovery of the essential human and political dimensions of the night. Through an approach both systemic and “chronotopic” we examine the visuality and invisibility of this night-time “scene,” with attention to its regime of intermittence, its organization, the forms of temporary and connected agencies involved, and the intensity of its “hypertopes”, those places enhanced by the intensity of exchanges (both face to face and over distances) and by in situ experimentation. Here and elsewhere, these appropriations (re)invent a public space of action, like so many “fireflies” amidst the multitude and as occasions in which the city assumes its existence.
