Squabble Over "Aftersquat" in Paris - 28 May 2013
Images of the 59 Rivoli "aftersquat" in Paris, a hub of counterculture and one of Paris’ most visited centres of contemporary art. The 59 Rivoli aftersquat houses 30 workshops on six floors where the public can freely view international artists in the
throes of creative process.

Originally a grand branch of Credit Lyonnais bank at No 59 rue de Rivoli, the building lay abandoned for 15 years before
being squatted in 1999 by a collective of artists. A deal with the current Paris mayor saw the building bought by the city and rented back to ten visiting and twenty permanent artists, a deal that officials now want to change. The residents are keen to put up a fight against proposals to alter a system they believe is a global example of compromise between squatters and
city officials.

A view of the 59 Rivoli "aftersquat"during the inauguration of its new facade in Paris May 8, 2013. Artists at one of the most-visited hubs of contemporary art in Paris are in a battle with city hall to preserve the status quo at their "aftersquat", where visitors can freely view 30 painters and sculptors in the throes of the creative process. Six floors of rooms showcasing the eclectic creators and their work are accessible from a spiral central staircase, spattered with paint in psychedelic colours that stands out from the building's nondescript Haussmanian exterior.
