ERASMUS+ "Reporters without frontiers" in Paris (4th day)

 In the fourth day of our transnational "Reporters without frontiers" project meeting in Paris, students and teachers began the day attending a conference in the college Paul Claudel on "What can (British) antiracist song do?" by John Mullen, professor at the University or Rouen.

In fact, it was entertaining to listen to and reflect about the lyrics of some rock, punk, among other styles, anti racist and xenophobia songs, although I personally missed some sociological reasons for these songs as well as some deeper explanations for students about some aspects of the cultural context in which they emerged. 

After the conference, students met in the school library to begin working on their presentations. Tomorrow they have to share all their interviews, audiovisual documents, impressions and opinions in order to present the final presentations at the end of the day. 

As part of the cultural programme of this visit, we had a ride by the river Seine on a bateau. Beautiful views of the two islands of the city were waiting for us!!

Bateaux Mouches (French pronunciation: ​[bato ˈmuʃ]) are open excursion boats that provide visitors to Pariswith a view of the city from along the river SeineThey also operate on Parisian canals such as Canal Saint-Martin which is partially subterranean.

At the end of the ride, we took some photographs of the Spanish group next to the Eiffel Tower. 

Students had free time to meet their mates and teachers visited the exhibition of paintings from Emil Bührle´s collection at Maillol museum.

Emil Georg Bührle (1890-1956) was born in Germany and settled in Switzerland in 1924. Between 1951 and 1956, he collected more than 600 works of art. This is the first time in Paris that some of these masterpieces are presented and brought together in the same exhibition.

The exhibition explores several trends in modern art: the great names of Impressionism (Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Degas, Renoir, Sisley) and post-impressionism (Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec), the early 20th century with the Nabis (Bonnard, Vuillard), the Fauves and the Cubists (Braque, Derain, Vlaminck), and the Paris School (Modigliani), and finally with Picasso.
