Camus 1913-2013 Digital Exhibit

For a hands-on digital event, this exhibit celebrated the centennial of the birth of the famous writer and philosopher, Albert Camus. It was shown all over the world in 2014.
The Institut français has launched an exhibit with a new digital and paper concept, the first one to be dedicated to Albert Camus. It will be made available to the French cultural network abroad within the scope of the French author’s centennial (on November 7, 1913).
All the content – critical essays, documents, videos – is already available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and German thanks to the translations made by the New York, Buenos Aires, Beijing, Beirut and Berlin branches. Further translations into Albanian, Indonesian and Polish are now in progress.
The project has been made possible by the partnership with the Gallimard publishing company and École Normale Supérieure for the preparation of general and scientific content, and produced with the support of the National Audiovisual Institute (INA), the Agency for the Teaching of French Abroad (AEFE) as well as the “Cellules” multimedia creation studio.
The exhibit was inaugurated in October 2013 in Argentina (at 26 venues in the city of Buenos Aires), in the southern countries as well as in the US, Canada and Greece.
The exhibit travelled all over the world in the French cultural network institutions, the AEFE as well as with their partners, particularly in Germany, Algeria, China, Egypt, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Russia and Turkey.
