BEAUX-ARTS DE PARIS, PARIS (FR)   20 February 2018 - 20 May 2018

Images en lutte. La Culture visuelle de l’extrême gauche en France (1968-1974)

With as its starting point the history of the Atelier Populaire and the posters of May ‘68, this exhibition examines the visual culture of the French Far Left from 1968 to 1974

Curators : Éric de Chassey and Philippe Artières

The fruit of a shared exploration of two opposing disciplines, the history of art and history, this exhibition offers a documented reading of this particular moment in contemporary history, the years 1968-1974, when art and politics, creation and socio-political struggles were intertwined.

This exhibition is not a visual history of politics but a political history of the image. It features posters, paintings, sculptures, installations, films, photographs, leaflets, reviews, books and magazines, including some 150 publications that can be consulted in an open library.
