Les Carnets de Camargo

Collaborative Project to Cope with Lockdown

The wind may blow, and storms may continue to break, but we are still standing. This might even be the new motto for the Camargo Foundation. To cope with confinement, we have encouraged our current residents to share their experiences, and so the collaborative project, Les Carnets de Camargo, was born. Visual, written, and spoken testimonies invite us into the residents' lockdown, on the banks of the Mediterranean, hovering between dreams and reality, between illusions and disillusion. As Les Carnets de Camargo also aim at being a bond for our community, through reflection and exchange, these creations will eventually be the testimony of this unprecedented moment. Over the course of the publications, former fellows and residents have also joined the project.
