Our dream is to transform an old Parisian dance hall, just minutes from Place de Clichy, into a venue for the documentary image (photography, video and film).
A place to present, compare and examine the many possible ways of addressing reality.
A place to question the issues involved in documentary creation; issues that span aesthetics and politics.
A place to debate the conditions in which documentary images are produced, published and seen.
A place to think about what a “document” really is:  part investigation, part experience, part recording and part creation.
A place to explore new visual forms that can convey reality in all its complexity.”
