These advertising documents introduce us to the unusual universe of a transgressive and exhilarating sport-spectacle. From the Bourreau de Béthune to the Ange Blanc, from the Boucher de Budapest to Chéri Bibi, KITSCH CATCH guarantees an extraordinary and compelling discovery.
On the occasion of this exhibition, Le Botanique is pleased to present a new edition of Barnabé Mons and Jimmy Pantera’s book KITSCH CATCH.
A sociologist of the bizarre, pop archivist, rock singer, and exhibition curator, 47-year-old Barnabé Mons lives and works in northern France. He has organised thematic exhibitions on pictorial psychedelia, fan art, deviant embroidery, and Franco-Belgian wrestling. For more information, visit his website confusion.space
