On April 8, 2014, they started demolishing this building in the 13th arrondissement of Paris.

What was it? A temporary street art exhibition which involved:

  • 100 street artists,
  • over 400 artworks,
  • 6 months of creative process,
  • and an exhibition that lasted 1 month.

Here is a series of interviews subtitled in English, with Medhi Ben Cheikh, the curator of the project and some of the artists.
