Paris as Lazarus

I couldn't resist connecting the birth of a new Paris arts centre in a mortuary to that silly article a year ago in Time magazine that declared French culture dead. Whether this 104 place is confirmation or refutation of that theory I'm not sure, but death seems pretty vibrant and vital in Paris -- even funky.

Meanwhile, if you're in Berlin, do come down today, Saturday or Sunday between about 3pm and 8pm to witness the Rice Experiment at Bridge Berlin.
