Discovered Le Comptoir Général last week, and what a space it is. An art museum dedicated to ghetto culture, Le Comptoir Général showcases the creativity that springs up in poor or marginalized places all over the world, especially in Africa. There are movie production and screening, exhibitions, themed attractions, a record label and a radio, shops (record shop, second hand store, library, toy shop), events, workshops, shootings…With ample sunshine flowing in from the skylight, this place is almost dream-like. Explore the two-floor space, linger for a cup of coffee, or come for drinks and music after dark.
