D-Day of contemporary art in Dunkirk
Dunkirk’s old pawnbroker "Dépoland" has turned into an art venue for an exhibition on men in the face of history. "L'art à l'épreuve du monde" (Art confronting the Word) is featuring a selection of iconic contemporary works from the Pinault Collection housed in Venice, alongside old masters and modern artists. Maurizio Cattelan’s Pope John-Paul II hit by meteorite is shown next to Goya’s etchings Disasters of War.
