Claude Cahun – Photographies, dessins, écrites

Dates: July 3 –  August 30,  2015
Venue: Médiathèque Jacques Demy, Nantes, France

The experimental self-portraits by Claude Cahun (1894 – 1954), born Lucy Schwob in Nantes in 1894, have gained international recognition and have been exhibited around the world. However this exhibition in Nantes presents not only surrealist artist and lesbian Claude Cahun’s photographs but also her graphic works, publications and letters.

The exhibition comes with a nice richly illustrated eight page programme (in French) about the events organised as an extension of the theme of the exhibition Claude Cahun – Photographies, dessins, écrites. Most of the events and lectures of the programme will take place in September and October 2015 after the exhibition has closed.
