Carnet d’un arpenteur, Les Minguettes, juillet-août 2006 (“A Surveyor’s Notebook, Les Minguettes”, July-August 2006") by M. Ganozzi, C. Pornon, J. Leguay, N. Flandin, R. Kuntz, France 2006, 45 min.
During the riots of November 2005, a person who has been living in Les Minguettes, Vénissieux, a suburb of Lyon, for 30 years, meets with inhabitants from Lyon city center. The desire and the idea of the film Carnet d’un arpenteur emerged from wandering together in the neighborhoods of the city. The film was produced in July-August 2006, it is a collective work. Producing texts, images and editing made them constantly share their views. Their aim was to recall the speech and the acuity of the surveyor and to make one feel the inextinguishable vibrancy of the so-called suburb. For more than 30 years, suburbs have dismissed any kind of consensus and normalization. “Our parties look like riots. Our riots look like parties. And this has been like that for centuries.”
Michel Ganozzi has been living in Les Minguettes, Vénissieux, since 1978. He is 65 years old. Since he arrived to Les Minguettes, he has participated to the life of his neighborhood in different ways. He has followed the adventures of the “hot summer” in 1981, the events of 1983 and the beginning of what will be called “The March”, in which he has not participated to show his disagreement. Natacha Flandin, Jérome Leguay et Christophe Pornon have written with Stéphane Berger et Didier Py the book Une révolte en toute logique. Des banlieues en colère ("A Riot in all logics, angry suburbs "), November 2005. Raphaël Kuntz ( has developed for several years a visual research around the representation of the city. He makes lectures in urban spaces and especially in peripherical industrial areas.

Informations and reservations on


The Tram contemporary art network presents Hospitalités, an event organized by 31 art spaces, consisting of 12 specific journeys throughout Paris and its region, from September 24th until December 10th. Each Saturday, two to three of the art spaces come together to propose a shared artistic programme, curated jointly by the members of the Tram contemporary art network. The journeys are in themselves a key part of the cultural programme and are punctuated with artistic happenings, performances and curatorial talks and debates.
Now in its third edition, Hospitalités highlights issues related to cultural diversity and explores the challenges and issues - ranging from personal to artistic and from historical to socio-political - associated with hosting outsiders. This year, the programme focuses in particular on questions related to the French overseas collectivities, international migration, travel, suburb architecture and landscape.
