Les villes, la rue, l'autre
20 June - 15 October 2018

Through this exhibition covering the confused, precarious post-war years between 1945 and 1960, the Centre Pompidou provides a new interpretation of Sabine Weiss's photographs, which belong to a movement unjustly perceived as "sentimentalist". Her rich and varied output, seen here through a fresh look at her work based on her own archives, illustrates a commitment fostering a reconciliation with reality.
