Paris, 2013. A falcon equipped with a tiny camera hovers over the desert like a 
living drone. Auguries are taken from the flight of starlings above the roofs 
of the Vatican. At ground level, a magician-mime uses conjuring tricks to 
interpret abstract art, shepherds watch over Glenn Gould practising a Chopin 
étude, and a prisoner secretly records his daily life on a smuggled phone in 
exchange for short video clips of the world outside. This month we’re mapping 
the conceptual terrain crossed by French artists in the past decade, from art 
and aesthetics to politics, philosophy, race, and citizenship. An irresistible 
cinematic amuse-bouche and digéstif will be served by Laure Prouvost, whose 
recent video installation Wantee, about the artistic friendship between her 
late (entirely fictional) grandfather and the Dadaist Kurt Schwitters, earned 
her a nomination for this year’s Turner Prize — winner to be announced in early
