one night | Paris 2005

One night, some 60 artists led an operation that involved covering the poster advertisements in the 11th arrondissement with visual works measuring 4m x 3m. For several days, the advertising space became a neighbourhood-wide exhibition venue.

artists take to the street | France 2004

The advertising company Viacom invited 20 artists who work in public spaces –Georges Rousse, Hervé Di Rosa, Wang Du, Raymond Hains, and Malte Martin, as well as Miss Tic, André, Futura 2000 and others– to create posters that would replace 2,000 advertisements across France during the month of August.

The project gave rise to a book:

give me a sign | June 2005

“What I would like to do is to use this visual theatre to recreate a public space that offers more to see and read than administrative signs and advertising messages. It’s an attempt to wrest back control of public spaces as a forum for imagination that belongs to those who live there…”

Malte Maltin introduced students at Emile de Breteuil high school to sign language and visual art installations in public spaces. Each student designed a sign that offered a new twist on road signage. Their creations formed a garden of signs installed in the pool between Saint-Quentin theatre and the high school.

fabrique de la ville, fabrique de cultures

Faire la ville autrement, en plaçant la création artistique et la vie culturelle au cœur de la fabrique urbaine, c’est le projet Fabrique de la ville, fabrique de cultures, un ouvrage collectif dirigé par Michel Duffour et Danielle Bellini, dans lequel des maires de la région parisienne témoignent, aux côtés d’artistes, d’acteurs de la culture et de l’urbain, des politiques culturelles menées dans des villes de la région parisienne.

C’est aux côtés de nombreuses personnalités inspirantes qui œuvrent à la fabrique de la ville et des cultures, que Malte Martin a contribué à cet ouvrage avec l’article “Pour un laboratoire des Communs et de la création urbaine”. Article disponible ici.
