The 1960s, ten years that changed the world.
Brigitte Bardot, the Berlin Wall, the Beatles, the Prague Spring, the Woodstock Festival and beyond, the student revolt leading up to May '68, the New Franc, but also the Vietnam War, the civil rights demonstrations, the assassinations of US President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, the Cuban missile crisis, and finally ended on a high note when the first man stepped on the moon in 1969... Enjoy the swinging 60's at Villa Juno!
It was a time of new beginnings. One world was ending. Another was being born. Looking back, this prodigious decade, so near and so far, never ceases to amaze with its vitality, its inventiveness, its audacity. And far more than the nostalgia of a supposed golden age (which the 1960s were not, nor was any era, ever), it is this energy that continues to fascinate young and old alike..
Facing the entrance, two "Marilyn" posters welcome you: One, cut out by Rancillac (a painter who participated in the "Atelier populaire des beaux Arts - ex Ecole des beaux Arts" of May 68), and the other, Andy Warhol's serigraphy, which experimented with prints and multiples, the use of everyday images in the subjects, and the trivialization and "commodification" of Art (which later became "pop art").
The May '68 poster is "stamped" on the bottom right, the Picasso poster was bought from Madura (the publisher of Picasso's pottery in Vallauris), during the exhibition of a series of linocuts on bullfighting.
In the bureau you will find issues of "Tout l'univers", a weekly encyclopaedia for children that was very popular at the time. The chest of drawers comes from our family and the "hang it all" coat rack is a reissue of the one designed by Charles & Ray Eames.
The blue of the door is the IKB (International Klein Blue) patented by the painter, Yves Klein, who died in 1962.
At the entrance to the toilets, a tribute to Yves Klein by Floc'h who parodies a cover of Life magazine with the silk-screen print "la vie en bleu".
