With this photographic exhibition, the Musée de l'Homme addresses a current social phenomenon: the reception and integration of immigrants. To make this series of about thirty shots, the photographer met dozens of people who had fled the war. Yet these portraits represent serene and smiling people. "They are happy. They're fighters! I wanted to show that refugees are first and foremost citizens, incredibly full of emotions and life. "says Clarisse Rebotier. For this series, the photographer wanted to set up a participatory project: the subjects became authors, they drew their own portraits in the darkroom.

These photographs become a plea for solidarity, taken on the esplanade of Human Rights, at the Trocadero, in the shadow of the Musée de l'Homme, which remains very attached to the humanist and universalist values that guided its creation in 1937.

While welcoming diversity and integrating refugees is currently a challenge for Europe and France, it also mobilizes humanist and universalist principles that are dear to the Musée de l'Homme. These photographs become a plea for solidarity, in which prejudices about immigrants are gradually being deconstructed.

As part of the season En Droits !
