"59 Rivoli"

“59 Rivoli” stands for what may be considered as an “artistic squat”. It has been there for some 20 years and has finally gotten some kind of official status, even support from the City of Paris and some other institutions. When it was first "squatted" or illegally occupied, the building, then belonging to a bank, had stood empty for years. As the name of the place indicates, the address is 59, rue de Rivoli.

You are welcome to visit the building, six floors full of active artists. The staircase - with its surrounding walls - is already something to be seen - see also top picture.
