Extensions of the History of People

With two artists for whom esthetics and the meaning of fighting are connected. Marcos Avila Forero used the houses of Colombian farmers  as photographic apparatus to symbolize their political fight for the reappropriation of their land. The houses witness the landscape. Frederic Lagny documents contemporary history of Burkina Faso, from Sankara’s revolution to the end of Comparoé’s dictatorship. She proposes a flamboyant collection of screenprints about monuments in Burkina Faso.
