Located a stone’s throw away from the Montreuil town hall, the Maison Populaire has housed the Mira Phalaina centre for contemporary art since 1995. Although it regularly showcases works by both established and emerging artists, the centre sees itself above all as a kind of breeding ground for art theory: leading cultural figures come here to discuss the implications of the latest exhibitions in academic terms. The debate is continued in the detailed catalogues that the centre produces in conjunction with each new exhibition. Come here expecting to have your notions of what constitutes art thrown out of the window and stamped on.
