October 2013: for one month, Paris became the world capital of street art. Neither a museum nor a gallery, it’s an apartment building bound for destruction that became home to the biggest collective street art exhibition ever imagined.
4500 m2 of street art, with more than 400 artworks spread over 10 floors. Over the course of six months, Mehdi Ben Cheikh, founder of the Galerie Itinerrance, invited more than 100 artists from around the world: from Brasil to USA, through Tunisia, Italy or England. All of the artists came to take over every square meter of the Tour Paris 13, secretly and without means. All together they were determined to exhibit their art to the widest audience. Over the course of 30 days, the tower was made accessible for free to the public, as a street art manifesto. People and media from across the world rushed to the Tour Paris 13. But, despite hours of queuing up, over 600 media publications and 570 000 visitors online, nothing will prevent the tower from its final - and artistic - destruction.
An immersion in the process of a radical art creation, with the exclusive and final testimony of this adventure, narrated by the artists who made it happen.
