Folie/Culture: Carrefour dément Laura Bluher

Carrefour dément

20 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds. The Folie/Culture team chose to take over these short periods of time to ensure the triumph of the pedestrian through a series of “grandiose” actions interspersed with car traffic and light signals that are insensitive to human error. Welcome to pedestrians of all kinds…and watch out for the machines!


Folie/Culture is Québec city based organisation that presents, since 1984, artistic and social activities that seek to inform, to raise awareness, and to promote in the area of mental health. It organises events that follow unusual directions in research while at the same time motivating reflection on questions relating to painful social issues.
