Dysturb takes part in the fight against all type of violence against women


On March 8, 2018,

Dysturb celebrates women as well as its 4th anniversary at Ground Control in Paris from 6pm to 9pm as well as at the ICP Museum in New York from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Come, join us and discover our programming :

In Paris, a round table led by Marie Sumalla, photo editor of Le Monde; Alice Pfeiffer, gender descriptor; Olga Kravets, multimedia journalist rewarded for her high-impact documentary on Pussy Riots; and Agnes Dherbeys, a photojournalist who observed the phenomenon of adoption on the side of biological mothers.

In New York, a presentation of our main paste-up campaigns from the last 4 years. Benjamin Petit and Kyla Woods will be joined by Simone Salvo from the Magnum Foundation, Krisanne Johnson, Amr Alfiqy and Ismail Ferdous, documentary photographers and contributors to #Dysturb.

We will launch the fundraising campaign for the second issue of the #Dysturb journal, dedicated to women, spearheading our #womenmatter global campaign. We will talk about the moral and physical violence women suffer, but also the dreamers and rebels who inspire change.

Projections of our teams and contributors from all around the planet !

A live performance by the artist Johanna Tordjman aka the Tordjmaniac, re-enacting the codes of street art. Passionate women and men who will share with you this vision of a world in constant evolution.

Join the movement and become our future good-fellow !
