Les années 1980, l'insoutenable légèreté

Les années 1980, l'insoutenable légèreté

The current exhibition of photographs and films returns to the 1980s with around sixty works by more than twenty artists, from Karen Knorr to Jean-Paul Goude and from Unglee to Présence Panchounette, taking in Pierre et Gilles, Martin Parr and Helen Carrey on the way.

Multiple, elusive, painful, capricious, as lightminded as they were serious, and still too near, the Eighties, taken to be the apogee of postmodernism, are heterogeneous and paradoxical. In France, it was a crucial decade for photography, both as artistically and institutionally.

Until May 23rd 2016 at the Pompidou Center.
