About the film

Obvious, hackers de l'art
by Thibaut Sève

VO French / English
With English / French subtitles

October 2018, an earthquake shakes the foundations of the art world. Christie's auctioned a work created in collaboration with artificial intelligence for $432,500. At the origin of this revolution was the French collective "Les Obvious", made up of Hugo, Gauthier and Pierre, three young self-taught artists pioneering AI and NFT, determined to fight their way into the elitist world of contemporary art. Through key moments in their careers, the film Obvious, hackers de l'art unveils the behind-the-scenes story of a silent revolution that is shaking the foundations of artistic creation and offering new perspectives on a subject where everyone thinks they hold the truth.
