2015 Sponsor of ARTE Documentary series The Adventurers of Modern Art
Adapted from Dan Franck’s literary trilogy, "Bohemian Paris, Libertad!, Midnight" – The documentary series made up of six episodes plunges us into Parisian life in the beginning of the twentieth century, a center of artistic creativity that generated Fauvism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism.
Through illustrations, animation and original archives, the film will trace the highs and lows, scandals and celebrations, tragedies and the triumphs that shaped the phenomenal period of Modern Art from the basement of the "Bateau-lavoir" in 1900 to the last shudders of World War II.
The main characters are Picasso, Max Jacob, Stein, Apollinaire, Hemingway, Matisse, Cocteau, Kiki… artists, art dealers, and muses who came to France from all over Europe and left an indelible mark on the 20th century. These glorious subversives were adventurers before becoming heroes.
