Paris: Le Monde, 28 Mai 1999
46 x 32cm, 38pp. A single number of the important Parisian tabloid daily newspaper which has given a full page to Boltanski as part of a "carte blanche" art project. Boltanski has supplied a fiull page image on Page 33 of an appropriated vintage photograph of a young Jewish girl with a party hat and costume. The fete de Pourim is a commemoration of the saving of the Jewish people from Haman who had plotted a pogrom according to the Book of Esther in the Old Testiment. Often children would wear fancy dress which seems to be the story here. Apart from those visual clues - there is no other information about the image - a typical Boltanski strategy to disrupt narrative. VG+.
