I don’t want to be a starving artist. But I have a thing for starving artists.
You live in a squat? You don’t have a job? Beautiful art-maker, from whence do you come?
59 Rue de Rivoli is a former squat on one of Paris’ busiest shopping streets. Now owned by the city, it’s still home to many artists working there for cheap.
(Does the fact that it’s now the Aftersquat – real name- make it less cool? Don’t know, but my friend Dani works there, and she rules).
