The evenings attempt circumventing the recount or mere doubling of the respective book’s content and intentions. The book here is used as an object or starting point from which to traverse individual experiences to engage in a discussion with the audience.
The Happy Fainting of Painting

For Salon Populaire’s second year, we have chosen Labor and Transcendence as topics to constitute the frame for our investigations.

In its first year, Salon Populaire followed two thematic threads, which evolved from the composition of the project itself. On the one hand, we were interested in current conceptions and the handling of space, which have given important impulses to the content and the formal direction of the salon. Out of this, we developed preliminary […]
