Lockdown, reopening, re-lockdown: the three-step dance currently setting the tempo of our world. Faced with an unprecedented situation, required to stay close to home yet yearning for a change of scenery, we share more than ever the same questions. How to make the best of solitude? What attitude to adopt when faced with a collective crisis? How to put into words this unique experience? And is going outside even worth it?

A topic of the moment if ever there was one, join us in exploring the theme of confinement through French novels, poetry, and film. From Xavier de Maistre’s praise of “the pleasure of traveling around one's room” to Thomas Clerc’s cartography of every inch of his Parisian apartment, as well as Baudelaire, Camus and Perec, this série will offer you, if not an antidote to the current state of affairs, a meeting place to read and discuss a few good books with Camilo.

  • Première séance: Les fleurs du mal, Charles Baudelaire (choix) (1857)
  • Deuxième séance: À rebours, Joris-Karl Huysmans (1884)
  • Troisième séance: La peste, Albert Camus (1947)
  • Quatrième séance: Un homme qui dort, film réalisé par Bernard Queysanne d’après le roman de Georges
    Perec (1964)
  • Cinquième séance: Intérieur, Thomas Clerc (2015)
