Circa 19681-4




                                   1. You are here, next to a young man with
                                   beautiful hair, en route to the Bastille, May 13, 
                                   one day before the general strike, two days after 
                                   the Sorbonne reopens, ten days since the police 
                                   occupation, four months following the riots at 
                                   Cain, in the wake of wildcat strikes in Lyons, 
                                   longer since matraquage: October 17, 1961, 
                                   Algerian workers, clubbed to death, thrown into 
                                   the Seine from Neuilly Bridge.

                                4. La Marianne de mai: „Des tas d’idées me passent par la tête. Je
                                pense même à la Révolution française. Moi, la jeune fille d’une bonne
                                famille anglaise. Je commence à poser. Mon corps se raidit. Je tends
                                mon bras. Mon visage devient plus grave. Alors, je suis piègée par le rôle
                                que j’essaie d’incarner.“

 artist, supporting his companion who
 has mal aux pieds.
