1. Benoît Maire is a Paris-based artist who produces sculptures, collages, ready-mades, films, paintings and performances.

In 2009, he started research on what he calls ‘The Aesthetics of Differends’, a conceptual borrowing from Jean-François Lyotard’s ‘differend’, which has enabled him to exhaust two notions that structure his work – relativism and linguistic form – and to create his own restructured aesthetics.
2. Clémentine Autain is a feminist politician affiliated with far-left and anti-capitalist movements. She took an active part in the 2012 French presidential elections.
3. Dutch artist Falke Pisano is a long-time collaborator of Benoît Maire. Her work, based on immersive research, fluctuates between concrete and abstract, object-based and performative, often centered on a deconstruction of linguistic structures.
4. Mark Geffriaud is a French artist who has exhibited regularly with Benoît Maire and who briefly shared a studio with him. Questions of disappearance and emptiness inform his work, which plays repeatedly with key elements such as books or light.
