Dedicated to the long-lasting ties between Mexico and France, this survey catalogue's common thread is the foundation of a Fourierist-inspired community in Jicaltepec in the 19th century. The historical event interacts throughout the volume with the works of artists questioning the notions of travel, exile, relationships and utopia.
Works by Marguerite Syamour, Jean Gigoux, Barthélémy Toguo, Simon Faithfull, Bernard Plossu, Ivan Alechine, Le Corbusier, Benoît Huot, Bruno Catalano, Carmen Calvo.

Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Château de Champlitte – musée départemental, from July 2nd, to October 17, 2016.
