... on the last page Toulouse, France -In front of Capitol (Town Hall) Les Arcades on ceiling. It’s a popular cafe street Parisian style in Toulouse.

Berlin, Germany On the basis it’s called Body art, with the concept “un autre corps” (French for another body) but we rather talking about body architecture, it’s a concept in which our contributor was born on the impulsion of his collaborator Bastien, on performance he has act. Always playing with transgression of the body. Limitations of body like a critic of globalize society that tries generalizing us, taking possession along our body, without letting space to body language leaving people scared and full of timidity about their own body. The work they do on their body and during their chirurgical operations, refers to the same things, but in a different way, must related to symbolism, less violent on real time and actual but present all days with all we got in our skin. Showing day by day to all people.

-Bagatelle: on this neighborhood there is a great big mural with the phrases: ‘Built together’ ‘Transmit’ ‘Stand up’ Those are written in many languages such as Chinese, English, French and Arab. Photos from Editor

Thanks Jon From Berlin Madrid, Spain Our contributor lives in Toulouse, but he went to Madrid on vacations and he took this photo of a single Mural. It called his attention but he didn’t understand the meaning, then when he got the meaning of the little phrase in Spanish, he got more interested on it and he liked it better. In English: ‘I went over built water; my walls are made of fire’. Thanks Jonathan From Toulouse

San Jose Costa Rica Contemporary engraving artist at the I Ibero-American Encounter of Engraving Artists Possibilities that engraving give us as an artistic technique are enormous, and what we get could be amazing. Recently La Galeria Nacional (National Gallery ‘Costa Rica’) got the soul of 11 artists, joining the great work of 11 artists from Spain and Costa Rica, in the first Ibero-American Encounter of Engraving Artists (6 Spanish and 5 Costa Ricans) all of them motivated by experimentation and also traditional techniques of engraving arts, but showing their own sign, according to their country and tendencies. The exhibition have been opened all December, at Galeria Nacional, at the Museo de los Niños (Children’s Museum), and next year Costa Rican engravings will travel to Spain. There is no doubt about the great visual experience, public can get, the great reference that those works are, to meet how the engraving is doing these days. Each artist demonstrates his own motivation, their soul by the interaction of different techniques in a same work, being just on interaction between the support and it’s technique, or better the interaction between the artists his own technique, and his support. Thanks Randy Rojas From Heredia, Costa Rica

Sténopé, Pubication December


European photographer rat the end of roller fails at Iamé, a Mali town, on full dogon country. This man is sick, something pushes in his chest, and two interpretations clash on this subject. These of traditional African town, being a carrier of fruitfulness, and these of occidental science, for which is crusted of cells proliferated in his seine. However both interpretations are exact.

The village where the story takes place is called Iamé. Actually this is a small village in the “dogon” area which is a part of Mali where lives that particular tribe, the Dogons. Mauritania is a country west from Mali, this picture in Mali desert has been taken by Laurent Contamin close to Mauritania. On the reading we can find Mali and especially the dogon architecture or landscape (Bandiagara’s cliffs for instance).

Through a language that offers a part of an irreducible enigma, Laurent Contamin made us hear a simple tale where are mixed African town and the world town, the original myth and cloning. His piece joins with happiness poetry and politics, carnal and spiritual on a very singular writing, which dares largely embrace the world.

There has been a radio play produced on France Culture a few years ago, and some public readings. Now that the play is published, our writer warmly hopes that would become be a production and be played on stage.
