La Barricade - Existing as a promise is a documentary and conceptual artistic project that explores the pictorial and photographic myth of barricades in Paris and France over the centuries. The installation consists of a large-format diasec and a video. The project deals with the past, present and future of the barricades, in present-day Paris but also in its suburbs as well as with it’s role as a revolutionary and architectural object. Upon that the installation reflects the role of the collective and its social interactions in times of building a barricade.

La Barricade - Existing as a promise was a commissioned work for Regards du Grand Paris #4 and has been supported by Cnap, Ateliers Médicis, Cité internationale des arts Paris, Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen and Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig, Germany
