Christine Spengler, the photographer famous for her war reports (amongst other things), is showing her Indonesian series in homage to Marguerite Duras for the first time at the town hall for the 6th arrondissement.

Marguerite Duras is of course the inspiration for one of the floors of the Hotel les Dames du Panthéon, and the town hall in question is very close to our hotels

…which is why we’re delighted to invite you to the special presentation night for the exhibition on 30th November!
