Exhibition"Prehistory" in the Paris Center Pompidou offers an original look at the presence of prehistoric images in the works of modernists and contemporary artists. The exhibits, from a mammoth carved on bones in the late Paleolithic era and found in the La Madeleine grotto, to sculptures by Louise Bourgeois emphasize the connection between prehistory and contemporary art.

On a chronological journey, you will discover how artists and society came under the spell of prehistoric times and were dominated by fantasies about those eras. This real time machine constantly forms the mental horizons of modernity and presents models for experiments of all kinds.
