'I have two loves, my country and Paris': Exploring Josephine Baker's New York legacy

Description

The Empire State building was lit up with the colours of the French flag this week, in honour of the American-French performer Josephine Baker, who was inducted into France's Panthéon mausoleum on Tuesday. In the US, Josephine Baker is just as beloved as she is in France, and nowhere more so than in Harlem, in New York City. Our correspondents Jessica Le Masurier, Yves Schaeffner and Fanny Chauvin met with New Yorkers to explore Baker's legacy.

  • 'Love Songs': Curator Simon Baker assembles intimate photo collection in Paris

    An exhibition about love feels like a radical prospect in an ever-more cynical world. Yet Simon Baker, director of the Paris-based Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP), tells us that curating a collection of photos that fully express the complexity, the pain and the sheer diversity of the emotion was something he'd long been wanting to do. From Nan Goldin’s unflinching views of the darker side of infatuation, to the daring images of same-sex desire that paved the way for subsequent generations, we discuss the photography on show.
