From 2009 till 2010, four artists (Jakob Gautel, Fabrice Lauterjung, Laurent Pernel and Bertrand Saugier) have been working in the region of Montbéliard, within the artis’cité programme, coordinated by the regional art centre of Montbéliard, ’Le 19’. This cultural project is part of the ANRU’s urban renovation project, and is supported by the Communauté d’Agglomération du Pays de Montbéliard.

Les Fougères, Grand-Charmont
" Point of View" : inauguration of the open-air café on May 25th.
