Panthéon, mode d'emploi - L'UX
Pantheon, user's guide - L'UX
Exhibition at the Istanbul Design Biennial

The French artistic movement l’UX (Urban eXperiment) and its spoke people Lazar Kunstmann are exhibiting until DEC. 12 at the Istanbul Design Biennial.
Located at the Galata Greek Primary School, this exhibit is part of Adhocracy, curated by Joseph Grima, a Milan-based architect and editor of Domus Magazine.

The exhibition named "Panthéon, mode d'emploi -  L'UX" is divided in two major parts.
The first one consists in H.D. photographs in big luminous boxes and posters explaining the different known activities of l'UX, from La Mexicaine De Perforation (clandestine cinema) to the Untergunther (restoration of the Panthéon clock).
Following this, a screening room where the film "Panthéon, mode d’emploi" ("Pantheon, user's guide") by Lazar Kunstmann is projected alternatively with Turkish and English subtitles will welcome you.
Note that to be comfortable and appreciate the film, you will be seated in wooden club chairs which are the reproduction of those used in the

The film and the documentation presented here were produced by l'UX itself and have never been shown publicly before. Obviously, none governemental agency or bureaucratic administration sponsored this exhibition.

With this exhibition, no doubt that we will have news soon from these secret activists.
Stay tuned!
