View of the 59 Rivoli aftersquat during the inauguration of its new facade in Paris
View of the 59 Rivoli aftersquat during the inauguration of its new facade in Paris May 8, 2013. 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 the 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 current Parisian mayor saw the building bought by the city and rented back to ten visiting creatives 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. Picture taken May, 2013.
