[Installation] Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo by Thomas Bellinck

From June 16 to July 30, 2018
Mucem, Marseille

Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo ("House of European History in Exile") takes you more than half a century back in time to the early twenty-first century. Although little-studied, this period nevertheless provided the breeding-ground for the sweeping changes that were to take place during our century. It was a remarkable era, characterised by Integration and Harmonisation. Blessed by the Long Peace. Overshadowed by the Great Recession. Back when national borders were blurred and people everywhere used a single currency called the "euro". Back when Brussels, not Warsaw, lay at the beating heart of the old continent. The first international exhibition on life in the former European Union.

Thomas Bellinck has been in residence at the Camargo Foundation in partnership with the Festival de Marseille.


[Exhibition] "Histoires dans la pénombre" by Roee Rosen at the Centre Pompidou

From June 27 to October 29, 2018
Centre Pompidou, Paris, France

This two-part project reveals the multifaceted work of artist, writer and film director Roee Rosen (Rehovot, 1963). The exhibition Histoires dans la pénombre presents two major works – The Blind Merchant (1989-1991), an alternative version of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice told by a blind usurer and Vladimir’s Night (2011-2014), a political treatise on the dangers of fetishising an object – accompanied by a more recent film, The Dust Channel (2016), an operetta on purification in all its forms.

A retrospective of his films entitled Sweet Sweat also highlights the irony, or rather agility of Roee Rosen's pieces on History, transforming fiction into a polemic space for current political questions.

The Roee Rosen: Sweet Sweat retrospective is a co-production with the Jeu de Paume and with the collaboration of the FID Marseille. Roee Rosen was in residency at the Camargo Foundation in 2018.

[Cassis Jazz Festival] "I don't dress fine - Tribute to Bessie Smith" by Sarah Lenka

Friday August 24, 2018 at 8:30 PM
Amphitheatre - Camargo Foundation


Sarah Lenka has always conceived singing as a way to liberate the emotions that flow through her. Surrounded by a new team, Sarah Lenka revives the frenzied and mocking spirit of Bessie Smith, as she also knows how to extract and highlight its passing melancholy and bitter irony. Totally rearranged by the group and cleared from its wrinkles, Bessie's songs find in Sarah's voice an original echo and seem to have been written for her.

Organized by Bleu Ciel Productions and the city of Cassis. Reservations and box office at the Office du Tourisme de Cassis.

Amphitheatre - Camargo Foundation


Dancing beatdrums like in one of these legendary New Orleans funerals, brass sounds full of soul, guitars blending folk and blues trends...
