Libraries are not just a means to archive the past, they also are incredible sources of inspiration for future creation. In collaboration with Self Publish, Be Happy, the MEP invites five emerging talents from the fields of photography, video and/or graphic and visual arts to create a collaborative work based on this collection of nearly 3,000 books.
In the form of a 5-day workshop, from June 13th to 17th, 2022, in the library of the MEP, led by Bruno Ceschel, founder of Self Publish, Be Happy, the selected artists will work on the conception and realization of an experimental work, at the crossroads of photography, video and digital art, set to music by a young talent of the French electronic scene.
They will receive support from the MEP and Self Publish, Be Happy teams, as well as technical and logistical assistance.
At the end of the workshop, the final work will be integrated into the MEP’s collections and presented to the public as part of the institution’s cultural program.
