Calendar of revolts

Matthieu Saladin - Calendar of revolts
Le calendrier des révoltes (Calendar of revolts) is a calendar where the usual information relating to each day (saints, historical events, etc.) leaves room for the only mention of a revolt that took place that same day in history or the near past.
The 2024 version (design: Achim Reichert) features trajectories through the year, following the ups and downs of the world. Readers are invited to browse the poster to find the date they want, moving from event to event on a large text map, as chaotic as it is faithful to the calendar.
Folded version.
Matthieu Saladin is an artist and associate professor in visual art at University Paris 8 (TEAMeD / AI-AC). His practice takes place in a conceptual approach and often uses sound. He is interested in the production of spaces, the history of artistic forms and creative process, and in the relationships between art and society from a political and economic point of view. He is the editor of the series Ohcetecho (Les presses du réel) and collaborates with journals such as Volume! and Revue & Corrigée.
