Paris Impasse

Paris Impasse gives a view of Paris as it has never been shown before. A city of dead-end alleys, photographed without any human presence. Karin Borghouts started photographing cul de sacs in 2011 but most of them were photographed during an artist-in-residence stay in La Cité internationale des arts Paris in 2015, provided by the Flemish Government.

The photography book Paris Impasse, designed by Jean-Michel Meyers, was nominated at Les rencontres de la photographie Arles in 2019, and is published by Snoeck Publishers in lockdown 2020.

This series is now on display for the first time. Discover also the museum's other exhibitions: En dilettante, Simon Vansteenwinckel, Clyde Lepage and its beautiful permanent collection. Photobooks of Karin Borghouts are for sale on the spot or online.
