But what blah blah blah bobo! Paris is a capital city of the cronyism of political patronage, money... The artists "official" of the palais de Tokyo are real sharks able and willing to do anything to "succeed". Since 20 years the system Delanoë, Hidalgo to cultivated a spirit of sect in the cultural world, and we are going to the opening night to show his dress or his new jacket "brand" certainly not for the item besides all the "beautiful" world looks like and mimics. All wearing the beard at the same time, have the same "look", and... to think the same thing.
