Synopsis

Salon for the 21st Century is an art salon inhabited by human beings that spend their time trying to redefine their way of speaking, of talking. Nothing exists but their bodies and the slippery nature of their thoughts. In this room, we favor the conversations, the thought and the idleness that moves the world.
