Comment voulons-nous vivre? Politique du photomontage (How Do We Want To Live? The Politics Of Photomontage)

Charlotte Perriand dedicated her life to improving the living conditions of the masses, creating an "art of living" in connection with nature. She used photography as a tool to observe reality, but also to defend her conception of a new world. In resonance with our current concerns, she used giant photomontage in the 1930s to denounce unhealthy urbanism and give her vision of better living conditions. Her photographic frescoes testify to the modernity of her approach, whether it is La Grande Misère de Paris (1936), the waiting room of the Minister of Agriculture (1937), or the pavilion of the Ministry of Agriculture at the International Exhibition of Arts and Techniques of Modern Life held in Paris in 1937, composed with Fernand Léger. The exhibition offers an insight into her conception of the world through her working method and her incredible collection of photographs - vintage prints, negatives, cut-up magazines, personal photographs -, archives shown to the public for the first time, set against the reconstruction of her monumental photomontages. Curator of the exhibition: Damarice Amao, with the complicity of Sébastien Gokalp and the Charlotte Perriand Archives.
