The exhibition Habiter le campement (Living in the camp) questions the new spaces and life of nomadic populations. This exile, often hoped to be temporary, has evolved into a permanence that obliges its inhabitants to create a new societal mode.
The panorama is exposed on scaffolding, obvious symbols of temporary constructions. The structure, conceived by 1024 architecture, proposes a linear path made of words, quotations and questions, from which are extracted paths to other worlds, rich in photos – those of the camps.
David Benmussa set the graphics and signage for the exhibition with several weights of Tuner, possibly because the uppercase A looks like a house or a tent, dwellings depicted in the exhibition. Titles are set in full caps, with each letter missing a part, like a building being erected or deconstructed. They are paired with abstract pictographic glyphs probably mimicking the “hobo signs”.
