“Occupying Paris: 1968 and the Spaces of Protest" coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of the 1968 protests in Paris and leverages the spectacular collection of period protest posters held at Harvard’s Houghton Library as well as photos from Yale’s Beinecke Library. It maps out the spaces of protest along the Seine, from Nanterre to the Renault factory, from the École des Beaux Arts, which was transformed into a “People’s Workshop” producing protest art round-the-clock, to the Sorbonne.
