Élan is an intercultural, communicative and collective project, appearing in a curated publication of concepts, interviews, texts, paintings, sketches and photographs by and with our friends, colleagues and people that we have encountered during our research. The mountain, around which french-lebanese author and painter Etel Adnan is constantly circling in her work, serves us as a point of reflection, and Adnan’s multidisciplinary approach informs our own. Élan is an expression of our relations between Germany and France, and beyond, featuring texts in German, French and English.
