Au cœur de Mai 68

May ’68 and its Legacies, The Fabric of Citizenship

Photo Exhibition by Philippe Gras

In May 1968, Parisian students marched down the street in protests that quickly spread throughout France. The country came to a near-standstill. This exhibition of works by late French photographer Philippe Gras tells the story of May ’68, fifty years after the event, translating the passions of the moment, the joyfulness that striking students and workers frequently displayed.
