Après (12 posters)
For twelve days in 2017, Éric Baudelaire and the curator Marcella Lista transformed Galerie 3 of the Centre Pompidou in Paris into a projection room, forum, and exhibition space. As a counterbalance to the political and media discourse attempting to shed light on the terrorist attacks of 13 November 2015, the artist made the film Also Known As Jihadi about the possible story of a man who joined the Al-Nusra Front in Syria. The film presents the architectural, political, social and judicial landscapes where the story unfolded. Each evening, events were organized to explore other paradigms, backed by 20th-century canonical works, to overcome the shock of the attacks and cope with unsatisfactory explanations of jihadism. Edited after these events, the twelve posters displayed through the exhibition give an account of the exchanges that took place.
