L'esprit français, Contre-cultures, 1969-1989

La maison rouge / Paris

24.02.2017 - 21.05.2017


La maison rouge presents L'Esprit français, Countercultures, 1969-1989, a thematic group exhibition by curators Guillaume Désanges and François Piron.

From Narrative Figuration to the hardcore graphics of Bazooka, from Les Editions Champ Libre to the first «radios libres» (a form of pirate radio), from Hara-Kiri to Bérurier Noir, the exhibition looks at the formation of a critical, irreverent, dissenting «French spirit» by proposing a multitude of crossovers and affinities. Through some sixty artists and over seven hundred works and documents, spanning newspapers, flyers, posters, and extracts from films, videos and television shows, it purposely looks to other creative «genres» than those generally in the spotlight of contemporary art.

With Lea Lublin, Pierre Klossowki, Michel Journiac, Claude Lévêque, Daniel Pommereulle, Jacques Monory, Françoise Janicot, Kiki Picasso, Roland Topor, Félix Guattari..
