May 1968, the voices of the protest

Cultural ,  Exhibition ,  Historic at Pierrefitte-sur-Seine

Archives Nationales
  • 68 is 50 years old. The time has come to open the archive cards of the ruling power.

    As part of the 50th anniversary of May 68, the National Archives is organizing a two-part exhibition on their two sites, presenting the events of 1968 as seen by the ruling power.

    It is through archival material largely unpublished that the National Archives invite, on the Paris site, to discover 68 from the offices of the administration, the prefecture or the executive power.

    While on the site of Pierrefitte-sur-Seine, it is the voices of protest that are expressed through documents collected or seized: leaflets, posters, audiovisual sequences ... by the actors of the time: forces of the order, archivists, researchers and activists.

    The National Archives presents more than 400 documents, some of which are still sealed in a two-part exhibition that begins in Paris and continues in Pierrefitte-sur-Seine.

    This assumed bias is not intended to tell a new story of 68, to be superimposed on previous stories: the exhibition wishes on the contrary, taking into account the historiographical renewals, contribute to the polyphony of the events of 1968. The objective is before any citizen: it is a question of showing how the archival heritage of the French Nation can explain and show the mechanisms of a state in difficulty.
