How has the Principality grown? That is the question pondered by this new exhibition, "Peaceful Conquests". The result of two years of research, the exhibition curated by Björn Dahlström and Christophe Martin, organised by the Monaco Department of Cultural Affairs, looks back at a century of Monegasque history through a large collection of photographs.
PEACEFUL CONQUESTS, Land Reclamation in Monaco: The title of this
exhibition, in the form of a deliberately provocative oxymoron, goes directly
to the heart of the contemporary political issues that the Principality has
opted to promote, namely development and environmental science. The two
interact in concert to guarantee the country a peaceful future. The exhibition
invites visitors to explore these geopolitical, social, urban, technical, and
ecological adventures - in short, the human stories upon which Monegasque
culture is built. To that end, it brings together a large collection of
cartographical, photographic, and audiovisual archives, along with various
plans and models. In addition, the
exhibition’s organisers interviewed a number of the people behind these land
reclamation projects, and those who use these new living spaces today, to get
their personal impressions.
A stroll through time, from the Monaco of yesteryear into the future
The exhibition will allow visitors to explore Port Hercule, redeveloped by Prince Albert I in 1910, or the future Mareterra district, planned for 2025, via Fontvieille.
