14 September – 11 December 2016
Le Bal, Paris
LE BAL presents the first exhibition dedicated to the famous Japanese magazine, which greatly influenced the history of photography through its major figures: Nakahira Takuma, Moriyama Daido, Takanashi Yutaka. Both a manifesto and a collective work, Provoke assigned a new role to photography as a reaction to violent social and political turmoil and echoed the emerging Performance art scene.
