We Are Football

  • through February 4, 2018
  • MuCEM, Marseille, France
In the elite neighborhoods of Paris and the low-income housing estates of Marseille, in the ports of Istanbul and Athens, in the suburbs of Algiers and on the beaches of Málaga, football—with its unparalleled popularity—has the ability to bring all Mediterranean residents together. Conversely, the sport also reflects the image of a Mediterranean Basin affected by social divisions, violence, racism and fanaticism. Although it remains the embodiment of a meritocratic ideal, football also reveals economic imbalances.
