Cosmos in Croisière

By Elisa Larvego, Switzerland (1984)

The series Chicanes considers the barricades built at the protest zone of the contested airport project at Notre-Dame-des-Landes, in western France. These structures are both examples of a current form of political resistance, and an ephemeral form of sculpture built by the protesters.

By Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber, Germany (1968 and 1966)

“YOU AND ME” is the name of a restaurant in Bowling Green (USA) owned by this story’s protagonist, Indira, and her family. Indira met Katija Stuke and Oliver Sieber in Düsseldorf, where she’d arrived as a refugee of the Bosnian war. When the German government requested that the majority of Bosnian refugees return to their home country, she left for the United States. In a book and a video installation, “YOU AND ME” covers Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber’s project documenting Indira’s journey.

The Chicanes exhibition is developed by the Centre de la Photographie Genève.

These projects are part of Cosmos-Arles Books’ third edition: Temporary Structure.
