Within two centuries, the growing speed of travel and the ubiquity enabled by telecommunications have changed everything: lifestyles, spatial planning, migration, pollution, global warming… Mobility is therefore at the heart of the major issues of our time. In this exhibition, the Mobile Lives Forum brings together artists and researchers to shed light on the history of these transformations, raise awareness on the collective choices we are facing, and open paths on to desirable futures. The exhibition combines many different artworks (photographs, objects, paintings, drawings, videos, installations), many of which were commissioned by the Forum, forming a dialog with the French National Archives’ collections and with scientific publications.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will sadly be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise around €20,000 ($25,000). We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible.
