JR’s Inside Out Project at Centre Pompidou in Paris

JR went to the Israel/Palestinian border, photographed people on each side making caricatures of themselves and then posted oversized photo printouts on the opposite side. Winner of the 2011 Ted Prize, he has taken this concept to the streets of Africa and the slums of South America, and now you can get involved this summer at the Pompidou Centre.

Tadashi Kawamata in Bordeaux and Paris

This wooden bridge by Tadashi Kawamata was installed in October 2009 as a temporary installation for the Evento festival in Bordeaux. The festival was aimed to re-activate urban space in through concerts, perfomances, workshops and debates and it is only fitting that the citizens of Bordeaux pushed for this bridge to become permanent.
