“The Night of Living Pictures”, inspired by the genre developed during the course of the 13th century, summons performers, video makers, authors and artists to invest  the Musée des Augustins for one evening during  which one could well come across a few ghosts looming  up from amongst the museum’s collections.

With the additional support of the École du Fresnoy.
With thanks to: Axel Hémery and the team at the Musée des Augustins.
