The starting point for Yto Barrada’s project is the unique and tragic figure of Thérèse Rivière. In the 1930s, the French ethnologist traveled to Algeria, to the Aurès mountains, to study the Berber Chaouis people.
Seminar cycle "Treasures on parchment"
The Book of Hours from the second half of the fifteenth century attributed to Maître François, the LA147, is likely to have belonged to René II of Lorraine, who is represented kneeling before the Virgin and Child in the illumination that opens the prayer Obsecro te. Our intention here is to pay tribute to Professor François Avril by presenting the results of a study he carried out and which uncovered some of the mysteries contained in this manuscript.
