See into the world of Paris' guerilla preservationists

  • Comment

A German television company has filmed one of the former projects of La Mexicaine de Perforation which, like the Untergunther, are part of the shadowy Parisian group UX, dedicated to infiltrating and inhabiting the city’s hidden and neglected places.

The film shows a bar deep beneath the city’s Palais de Chaillot, orginally run by La Mexicaine de Perforation as a cinema, and now a flourishing venue for those in the know - complete with contravention on the smoking ban.

To read more about the Untergunther, another group affiliated with the UX, see the AJ article:
