About the publication

The exhibition Native Land, Stop Eject, organized by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in 2008, presented filmmaker and photographer Raymond Depardon, and urban planner and philosopher Paul Virilio, who proposed a reflection on the notions of “taking root” in a given place, and of being “uprooted.” It also attempted to address the questions of identity that are linked to these notions.
The catalog Native Land, Stop Eject offers a chance to explore the problematics raised in the exhibition. It demonstrates Raymond Depardon’s affective, identity-based approach as he explores the continents meeting people attached to their land and language. Paul Virilio’s reflection on human paths and movements in today’s world is developed in a previously unpublished text, entitled Stop Eject, backed by a selection of significant images that form a veritable visual stream.
