Marie Docher, the knight of photography

Photographer Marie Docher, October 3, 2022, in Paris.

It is enough for Marie Docher to point her nose outside for life to remind her of her fight. In Paris, as she poses in front of the photographer responsible for taking her portrait for The worlda man comes to tell them to get out. “We had found a nice corner with a fresco, sighs the photographer, and there is a guy who came, in hyperaggressive mode: “You are bothering me, I want to take a picture of the fresco with my phone.” We pushed each other, but he didn’t take his picture, he rotted, rotten, rotten us. »

Yet another clash for the 60-year-old photographer, who has been collecting them since 2014, when she made it her mission, alone and then with the collective La Part des femmes, to denounce the under-representation of women in the world of photography. photography. With a watchword: “count so that they count”. Examining the programs of art centers and publishers, public collections, scholarships and prizes, she has created statistics on which she relies to challenge, in private then in public, on social networks, those responsible ( mostly male) institutions. By recalling that they benefit from public funds. A shock therapy that generated controversy and cascading insults.

“I don’t make war on men, I want to end the war they are waging on us” – Marie Docher, photographer

For the moment, the “rabid feminist” caresses a cat in a cafe, sparkling blue eyes, easy smile. But ready to respond tit for tat. “I don’t wage war on men, I want to end the war they wage on usshe summarizes. And I’m radical, in the sense that I go to the root of things. » Namely, at the roots of a system that makes women photographers invisible in prizes, galleries, museums, festivals, while they are in the majority in art schools. She recalls the study she published on the careers of women photographers, conducted by the sociologist Irène Jonas, and the tools for reflection made available on the site, where sociologists, historians, curators such as Marie Buscatto, Fabienne Dumont or Alain Quemin analyze the place of women – and people of color – in the art world.

“An Invisible Woman”

His stroke of genius, at the start, was to pass himself off as a man. Under the pseudonym of Vincent David, she created the blog “Atlantes et caryatids” in 2014, named after the statues that support the monuments – pillars of the system. She is first interested in the European House of Photography (MEP), where more than 80% of monographic exhibitions are devoted to men, then in the Delpire editions (91% of men in the “Photo Poche” collection at the time), at the Rencontres d’Arles (82% of men exhibited in 2013). As a man, she says, “I learned what respect was”. As soon as she reveals her identity, things change. “I went from the ideal son-in-law, the nice, intelligent, progressive guy, to the hysterical woman. While my speech had not changed! »

The new PS5 with a more powerful chip is finally available in Europe

Sony has just started to market its third generation of PS5 in Europe, equipped with a brand new processor engraved in 6 nm even more efficient than the previous model. We explain how to get it.

Credits: PS5

A few weeks ago, Sony had started distributing a new PS5 model in Australia. The latter uses the number “CFI-1202A” for the standard version and “CFI-1202B” for the digital version. This third generation of PS5 is 300 grams lighter than the second generation released in 2021, and weighs even 600 grams lighter than the original model.

Unlike the previous generation, this new series of consoles from Sony uses a brand new AMD Oberon Plus processor engraved in 6 nm by TSMC. The chip is therefore smaller than the 7nm AMD Oberon of the first two PS5s, but above all much more energy efficient. The weight was then reduced thanks to the adoption of a less important cooling system.

How to get the new PS5 model?

According to information from our colleagues at WinFuture, the new PS5 CFI-1202A and CFI-1202B are currently only shipping to Europe as part of the God of War: Ragnarök bundle. You will therefore have to buy this version if you want to benefit from the latest PS5 model. In addition to its reduced weight and its new processor, it offers another even more interesting advantage.

Indeed, the first tests found that the new model consumed 20 to 30 W less than the previous versions. This is therefore excellent news given the economic situation and the rise in energy prices. Making sure you buy the latest PS5 will therefore allow you to reduce your electricity bill.

We imagine that Sony plans to eventually replace all the old models with this new version.n, but it is currently unknown when this new PS5 will be sold outside the pack with God of War Ragnarök. If you still haven’t seen what the game will look like, a tester has already released over 60 preview images. Our full test will arrive in just a few days.

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi case: a controversial memorandum of understanding

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, president of Paris Saint-Germain, during a match at the Parc des Princes, in Paris, on October 11, 2022.

It is a curious four-page document which is at the heart of the affair between the Qatari Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, known as “NAK”, boss of Paris Saint-Germain and the BeIN Media group, and the Franco-Algerian lobbyist Tayeb Benabderrahmane . Co-signed on July 10, 2020, by Mr. Benabderrahmane, represented by the Parisian law firm Oplus, and one of the lawyers of “NAK”, Renaud Semerdjian, this transactional “memorandum of understanding” was supposed to “put an amicable end” to “dispute” between the two men “relating to the misappropriation by Mr T. [M. Benabderrahmane] confidential documents to the detriment of the victim [M. Al-Khelaïfi] “.

The world has read this document, “governed and interpreted in accordance with French law”which lists a series of “declarations and undertakings”, and which Mr. Benabderrahmane has been contesting since September 2021 before the Paris court. The lobbyist believes he initialed him under duress while he was under house arrest at the Intercontinental Hotel in Doha, with a ban on leaving Qatar, after five and a half months of detention ” arbitrary “ in the emirate.

As a preamble to this agreement, “Mr. T. acknowledges having unlawfully appropriated confidential documents, the purpose and content of which he notably altered/falsified”. The nature of these famous documents, to be delivered on the day of signature of the protocol, is not specified. Reference is made to “audio, video and photo recordings on any medium of any kind whatsoever, of all writings/confidential documents, originals and/or copies (…) directly or indirectly related to the person and/or the family, professional or public life and/or the activity of the Victim and or the companies he represents, held directly or indirectly by Mr. T. or his affiliates [« membre de sa famille et toute personne ayant eu connaissance des agissements de Monsieur T. » et « toute personne en possession (…) ou ayant participé directement ou indirectement à l’obtention, la garde ou l’utilisation des documents confidentiels »]. »

Three USB sticks

An appendix lists three USB keys and one “black external hard drive” “in possession” of “Mister T” and/or his “affiliates” and that Mr. Benabderrahmane has undertaken to return in full to Mr. Al-Khelaïfi.

As evidenced by a letter dated June 15, 2020, three supports were submitted by Olivier Pardo, the lawyer for Mr. Tayeb Benabderrahmane and the Moroccan Hicham Karmoussi (who would have signed two protocols for him) – former confidant of “NAK” and alleged source of said documents – to Francis Szpiner, one of Mr. Al-Khelaïfi’s lawyers. Me Pardo assures that he ignores the content. Three supports are presented on two photos attached to the mail. Contacted, Me Pardo declined to comment, being “subject to professional secrecy”.
