One of the defining characteristics of the modern era is its anonymity, from the commodification of the everyday and the homogenization of culture, to the standardization of work and our alienation from political power.
Anonymes focuses on North America. Since the 1930s, American mainstream culture has celebrated individuality and the self, while nearly all its important image-makers have addressed the nondescript, the flattening of daily experience, and the pervading sense of anonymity.
For its inaugural exhibition, LE BAL brings together ten photographers and filmmakers whose work experiments with ways to record this anonymity: by definition, an indeterminate, unremarkable notion that escapes visual stereotypes and classification.
