Marcelo Brodsky, « 1968, the Fire of Ideas »
Presented by Martin Parr


ELSE, magazine of the Musée de l’Elysée, invites you to a journey from the Orient with Nadim Asfar’s poetic photograms illuminated by the Lebanese sun, to the Extreme Orient through the very delicate series by Chinese photographer Jiang Pengyi. The Museum welcoming the full diversity of photography, the magazine also presents Marcelo Brodsky’s committed work bringing to life the 1968 social movements by drawing on black and white prints; and Pablo Hare’s, questioning the relationship between text and gesture by documenting publications that once belonged to a terrorist group in the 1960s.

ELSE introduces a dialogue between the still lifes of Manfred Paul, from the Museum’s collections, and those of Mathieu Lavanchy, while Ad Nuis’ quirky eye reveals some of the incongruity to be found in the daily lives of “ordinary” people. With humor and consideration, Nicolas Daubannes demonstrates the creativity of inmates who create cooking recipes with a limited range of ingredients. Maurice Mbikayi questions the impact of the digital era and new technologies on African societies and the deep changes generated in traditional societies.
