French Artists Use Law to Question Immigrant-Author Status

Through a performance project, two French artists, Patrick Bernier and Olive Martin, juxtapose the legal status of an author versus that of an undocumented immigrant facing deportation in France.

Interesting project and “trial,” and another indication of artists using law as a medium. Via Afterall Journal. Thanks to Andrea Liu for sending this our way.
