Albert Camus exhibition

Camus 1913-2013 Digital Exhibit, April 1 – 30

The Department of Modern Languages and Cultures and the Alliance Française Silicon Valley are proud to bring the Camus 1913-2013 Digital Exhibit to the NDNU library April 1 through 30.

Digital and hands-on, this exhibit celebrates the centennial of the birth of the famous French writer, philosopher and “engaged” intellectual Albert Camus. The Alliance Française Silicon Valley is one of the first Alliances Françaises worldwide to offer this multimedia, multi-language exhibit designed to engage viewers in 40 countries throughout 2014.

From UCSC to Stanford, from Reed Smith LLC Law Firm to Google Inc., the rotating display provides more than one hour’s worth of curated content, including never-before-released photos from his publisher, Gallimard.

The exhibit is best viewed by using a smart phone, Android or iPhone. Download and install the free IFCAMUS app from the Playstore or iStore in order to scan any of the QR Codes displayed on the exhibit’s panels (a total of 30 codes) to enjoy videos, audio recordings, photos and text.
