Designed as a mediation, an experience and a comparative approach to an image of our era, that of migration, "Calais témoigner de la ‘jungle’ -Witnessing the ‘Jungle’" focuses on the situation of the refugees in a camp on the outskirts of Calais, nicknamed ‘The Jungle’, prior to its dismantling in October 2016.

Through three perspectives, that of artist Bruno Serralongue and his documentary project Calais (2006-2018), the photos of Agence France-Presse published in the media and witness accounts by former residents, the exhibition explores the various functions, roles and statuses of the image and highlights the extent to which the Centre Pompidou is also a social and political venue.
