‘Nil Yalter’ for 49 Nord 6 Est Frac Lorraine, Metz (France)
On the occasion of the first French retrospective of the work by Nil Yalter (1938, Cairo, Egypt), 49 Nord 6 Est invites to discover over a dozen pieces by this firmly engaged artist of Turkish origin, most of which have never been shown on the national artistic scene. She is a pioneering, spirited, and original artist motivated by social and political convictions. Rooted in conceptual art, her work does not reject either form or materiality and, inits singular approach, eludes the contemporary artistic canons. In collaboration with Gonzalo Sanchez.

Peking dog for Morad Bouchakour, Amsterdam (Netherlands)
This book documents the work of Morad Bouchakour. The Dutch photographer explores Beijing’s old working class neighbourhoods, also known as Hutongs. Peking Dog captures the symbolic status that cars have become, even in the Hutongs, and the mission to protect this status, against the rise of a new status symbol, owning a dog.
