ART, GUERRE ET CONTESTATION
In partnership with the Pompidou Library
In this exhibition presenting explicative panels, photographs and historical documents from its patrimonial collections, the Pompidou library revisits five of the conflicts from the last century that gave rise to protest movements. Poets, singers, writers and filmmakers have spoken out against these conflicts in pieces of work that can be borrowed from the library.
