Riverboom rase de près
Riverboom is a collective founded in 2002 by three war reporters on a moonless night in a valley in northwest Afghanistan. It is in this valley, infested with wolves, bandits and Taliban, that the impetuous River Boom flows. The collective is composed of photographers, writers, journalists, graphic designers and film makers : Claude Baechtold, Edoardo Delille, Gabriele Galimberti, Serge Michel, Alexandre Tzonis and Paolo Woods.
Riverboom’s motto is a quote from Churchill: « Success is the ability to get from one failure to another without any loss of enthousiasm ».
After a decade of travelling, Riverboom invites the public into his hair salon, transformed into a cabinet of curiosity containing pictures, films, anecdotes, furniture, sounds, wallpaper and other unusual objects. He displays mementos brought back from the confines of the North Pole, from the battle fields in Iraqi deserts, from the Great Wall of China as well as objects from Chinese immigrants in Central Africa from Texan taverns or from the east Siberian oil fields. Come and dive into the wonderful world of Riverboom rase de près.
Riverboom 2002 - 2022 GREATEST HITS – COMING HOME
Riverboom was founded in 2002 by a small group of aspiring war journalists in a valley in north-west Afghanistan, through which the river Boom flows. Over the past twenty years, Riverboom has published books, created exhibitions, produced films, and organised parties, while predominantly being a stage for inner struggles. Riverboomers are photographers, filmmakers, graphic designers, journalists, and writers : Claude Baechtold, Edoardo Delille, Gabriele Galimberti, Serge Michel, Alexandre Tzonis and Paolo Woods. Having surrendered their youthful vitality for the banal obligations that come with age, they are making the most of the invitation extended by L’Appartement to flaunt, as most ageing stars do, their soon-to-be long-gone ‘Greatest Hits’.
