‘Les Gilets Jaune’
March 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until March 14, 2020
The movement of Yellow Vests, ‘Les Gilets Jaune,’ marked France in 2018 and 2019. Sabrina Dolidze and Jérôme Gaillard followed and photographed the events in Paris and Dijon. Their photographs report highlights the social inequalities that shake Yellow Vests and gradually lead them to a near-revolutionary struggle with the government, whose police forces are the last bastion. Marked by growing injustices, citizens dream of a better world to which they wish to contribute, but they do not get the desired answers. The situation is degenerating towards the escalation of the respective violence. The climate is heavy, the tensions are palpable, the images highlight the balance of power that settles on both sides and question the fragility of the democratic system of our current society.
