Dear Friends,
Welcome to the April 2014 newsletter!
April will be the guideline for many of the items this month featured, with different anniversaries.
The 5th anniversary for the publishing of "La Culture en clandestins : L'UX" by Lazar Kunstmann: a culture shock!
April 26th is the sadly date of Chernobyl for which we feature the work by Robert Polidori "Zones of Exclusion" and on April 2010 the Deapwater Horizon platform soiled the coastline of Louisiana for which we choose the photographic work by Daniel Beltrá, "Spill".
Myhth or reality? April 30th, is the 210th for the discovering of the skeleton of Philibert Aspairt in the underground quarries of Paris whose tomb became a world famous monument. Virginie Palier and Gilles thomas studied the case.
We add a short movie on a scenario by Lazar Kunstmann: "The Stolen Paintings’ Great Escape / Le Muséum d'Histoires [sur] Naturelles". May be an explanation of the quite recent paintings theft in Paris...
You will also find a new article by our collaborator Olivier Namias.
By adding our new items, we created two new pages in the site: Portraits and Towers.
