Can we free ourselves from borders ? 

The 10th occasion of Préavis de Désordre Urbain is celebrated in a context that is quite unfavorable towards serenity : which reception for the migrants in the Schengen area nowadays ?

Préavis designs a particular scenography for the year 2016, around the Checkpoint, set up with barriers and tents. 
Moving from la Friche towards the sea, it follows its own migration.

As a governing principle of this urban odyssey : can we free ourselves from the frontiers ? More than ever, it is important to re-appropriate the public space. More than ever, PDU must hold its course to resist to the surrounding fear and re-enchant this chaotic world. 

A suspension time in this society that is about to implode, vital emergency stop, were we can take a breath at the Checkpoint. 

You traveler, there is always something that will be given to you there…
