Arc en rêve - Once upon a time tomorrow - 2011

Exhibition set-up - Evento 2011 - Les Abbatoirs Bordeaux

"Once upon a time tomorrow" tells the story of the urban utopias that take root in Bordeaux and develop in 2030 - the year when the city will have reached the magic number of one million inhabitants. This fiction takes the form of a fresco, which takes place according to the vision of STEALTH , with the words of Bruce Bégout, interpreted by graphic designers and cartoonists. The inhabitants are the masters of use of the city. They deploy forms of collective organization that invent the city on a daily basis, and weave new solidarities. The Abattoirs site hosts this exhibition, next to the Halle Debat-Ponsan, a remarkable architectural testimony to the interwar period.
