On the occasion of the event Faisons de l'inconnu un allié from 11 to 23 October 2016 at the former Weber Métaux stores (Paris 3e), Lafayette Anticipations - Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette published its first book, entitled Anticipations. It offers a retrospective look back at the first three years of activity of this cultural institution created in October 2013.

The Foundation, whose building is rehabilitated by Rem Koolhaas/OMA, opened its doors in March 2018. It is conceived as a laboratory and a "curatorial machine" open to the public, offering cross perspectives and points of view on the challenges of artistic production in the 21st century.  

Anticipations brings together "production notebooks" devoted to artists and creators Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, Ulla von Brandenburg, Compagnie Mùa/Emmanuelle Huynh, Paul Kneale & Raphael Hefti, Simon Fujiwara, Olaf Nicolai, Rotor, Jerszy Seymour, Gabriel Sierra, Editathon Art+Feminism/Flora Katz and Anicka Yi. The cover of the book was commissioned from the artist Raphael Hefti.  Essays and unpublished interviews with thinkers and professionals from the art world accompany these notebooks: Howard S. Becker, Neil Cummings, Valérie Da Costa, Chris Dercon, Lidewij Edelkoort, RoseLee Goldberg, Rem Koolhaas, Franck Leibovici, François Quintin, Judith Wielander & Matteo Lucchetti.
