The Red List is a source of inspiration.
Designed as a trend book and a source of inspiration, the Red List offers total immersion in the whole world of visual arts so as to build bridges between historic and contemporary creativity. What would cinema be without photography? Interior design without architecture? Fashion without painting? Image researchers need to see what’s new and innovative, but they also need to train their eye by picking up on the references, echoes and allusions that have nourished (and continue to nourish) artistic creation.
The Red List is about returning the fundamentals of the digital revolution by reviving a vision of the Internet that’s free and accessible to all. The Red List uses the fact that works are moving from the physical to the virtual – and so circulating differently – to promote the principle of online appropriability. The Red List classifies images that are already available online so that their sheer wealth becomes more easily accessible. It highlights extracts from works to give an insight into different and unique visual universes. And by asking users to curate their own selections and suggestions, the Red List stands up for the idea of an inclusive community.
