QR Codes Invoke Unpleasant Memories in Paris

“Paris, désordres publics” (Paris public disorder) is an urban art project from Raspouteam in which twenty different ceramic QR Codes were deployed on the streets of Paris (video below). The tiles were affixed near the scene of social or morally objectionable historic events. For example the drowning of the Moroccan immigrant Brahim Bouarram by a mob in 1995 or the notorious antisemitic exhibition during Nazi occupation at the Palais Berlitz in 1941. A clickable map showing the location of the QR Code tiles is on the Raspouteam website.
