THE WORLD AS IT IS!

THE RENCONTRES D'ARLES AT THE J1 IN MARSEILLE

8 EXHIBITIONS
NOVEMBER 1, 2017 —  JANUARY 7, 2018

FREE ADMISSION

HANGAR J1
QUAI DE LA JOLIETTE, MARSEILLE


The MJ1 and the Rencontres d’Arles are extending the summer with eight free shows at the J1 in Marseille from 1 November 2017 to 7 January 2018.

The more we think countries are closed off and mired in political or economic crises, the more photographers are there. They reveal, tell, attest, invent, repair and rebuild with their own language, that of the image. They decode the early signs of social change.

Come and share this taste for other places at major exhibitions that marked the Rencontres d’Arles this summer with 40 photographers who are wondering about the state of the world.

The World as it is! offers a journey from the shores of the Bosporus to sub-Saharan border areas, from the divided island of Cyprus to a Libya torn between war and refugees. You’ll dive into the watery world of Gideon Mendel; think about the Monsanto case, from climate change to the food crisis, with Mathieu Asselin; see architecture from suburban utopia to the urban sprawl of Ankara. From the local to the global, La Vuelta will take you to the heart of Colombia, where hope is returning after 60 years of armed conflict.

The World as it is! is a radical immersion into the heart of seething, complex geopolitics.
