Get a different perspective on Paris with the Brassaï – Graffiti exhibition at the Pompidou Centre

From the beginning of the 1930s to the end of his life, the Hungarian-born French photographer Brassaï never stopped making a visual record of the drawings and signs painted or scratched on the walls of Paris. A habitual nocturnal stroller with a fascination for outsider art, Brassaï wandered through the little-known or popular districts of the capital and sought out the markings made on Parisian walls, taking hundreds of photographs and getting in close to capture every detail. The current exhibition is based on the resultant Graffiti series now housed at the Pompidou Centre and takes a new look at these images, showing in particular how some of the prints in the series have been reused by other artists, being integrated into collages or used to illustrate collections of poetry. This is the imagery of the people; traces left by the inhabitants of the capital that give us a different perspective on Paris.
