May 68

Bruno Barbey

"I came back to Paris in spring 1968, where big riots were taking place. For weeks my clothes were saturated with the persistent smell of tear gas. It was the rebellion of a whole generation against what the society prepared."—Barbey

An informative and inspiring account and historical resource, thank you. Especially useful for my illustration and design students: we studied one of Barbey's photos (not included in this broadcast) of a student walking past a 'Chienlit' poster surrounded by more official and conservative CGT ones.
Always nice and inspiring work, (also the one from Nepal), thanks. Patricio
