François Havegeer and Sacha Léopold (Syndicat) invited Aurélien Mole, Jérôme Dupeyrat, Mathias Augustyniak (M/M Paris) and Thierry Chancogne to express their views on art posters, artist posters, posters made by artists, posters made with artists, posters made for artists, and the occasional participation of graphic designers (special issue of the critical review dedicated to graphic design).

In Sérignan, Aurélien photographs “Honey, I rearranged the collection” the exhibition presented at MRAC Sérignan, before catching his train.

Act 2
Thierry and Jérôme encounter Sandra and Miguel's exhibition; following this they have a discussion at the water's edge.

Act 3
Animated by their discussion, Thierry and Jérôme analyze the posters by artists and graphic designers that have marked them, including Christophe Lemaitre, Sturtevant, Richard Hamilton works.

Act 4
Mathias reads and rereads Thierry and Jérôme's discussion in his chalet, after his plane has landed.
Faire is a bi-monthly magazine dedicated to graphic design, published from October to June, distributed each two months in the form of anthologies of three or four issues. Created by Empire, Syndicat studio's publishing house, Faire is aimed for undergraduate students as well as researchers and professionals, documenting contemporary and international practices of graphic design, along with the history and grammar of styles. Each issue focuses on a single subject, addressed by a renowned author.

“Critical publications dedicated to the analysis of Graphic design are sadly few and far between today, particularly in France, but also in Europe as a whole. Adopting an analytical and critical posture with regard to the forms and activities of Graphic design, Sacha Léopold and François Havegeer intend to establish a printed publication that deals with these practices. The publication will work with seven authors in its first year (Lise Brosseau, Manon Bruet, Thierry ChancogneJérôme Dupeyrat, Catherine Guiral and Étienne Hervy). This initially limited choice, linked to a desire to propose an experience with a group that has previously participated together in projects, will then allow for the inclusion of foreign authors in the second year of publication.”
