The artistic director of this new edition, Kitty Hartl, sees Paris in the image of the “Garden of Delights”, a famous painting by Jérôme Bosch (1450-1516). It offers a contemporary and free interpretation of the famous triptych by installing in the city, and more particularly in its heart, about fifteen multidisciplinary projects imagined by international artists.

Kitty Hartl participated, among other things, in the launch of the Lieu Unique in Nantes and founded the Cabaret New Burlesque in 2004, made famous through the film Tour by Mathieu Amalric, winner at Cannes in 2010.
