The project consists of an installation, flyers, and a video, which have been created as a
comment on both the past and the future of the French Pavilion at the Student Center. They are
based on the fact that, after the building was constructed in 1937, an inscription reading Liberté,
Égalité, Fraternité was placed above the door, but it was removed after World War II, during the which
the Pavilion served as a transit camp. The current reconstruction does not foresee the restoration of the
inscription. The light installation made for the façade of the Pavilion shows various versions of tripartite
slogans on freedom, while the political and theoretical background of these versions, as well as the history
of the building as such, can be read on flyers, distributed at much frequented places around the Student Center.
The video, which can be seen on the festival website, shows the façade with the light installation.
