Marseille, Bordeaux, Washington, São Paulo, Grottaglie in southern Italy—since 2009, JR has traveled far and wide with the UNFRAMED project. For the first time in his career, he does not hang up his own pictures but works of known or unknown photographers. After previous UNFRAMED projects such as the one in Vevey in 2010 and Marseille, the 2013 European Capital of Culture, UNFRAMED has now come to Baden-Baden in the scope of the eponymous exhibition at the Museum Frieder Burda

As a large-scale project in the city’s urban space, UNFRAMED BADEN-BADEN addresses German-French history and the friendship between the two countries. By putting up posters featuring historical photographs from people’s private photo albums in Baden-Baden’s historic city, JR places the theme in a new context. In the run-up to the exhibition, citizens of Baden-Baden were invited to participate and submit their own personal material. The city has always been a link between Germany and France where, after decades of enmity, the reluctant rapprochement between the two countries is palpable.
