This event has ended.

The title of the exhibition is taken from the 1978 film by Jean-Marie Straub and Danielle Huillet, based on the poem by Stéphane Mallarmé, "Un coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard" (A roll of the dice will never abolish chance). The movie was filmed near the graves of the Communards of 1871, who were executed and buried at Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris. The Franco-Prussian war had been lost; defeated, embattled, and disgraced, the government of France turned on its own citizens and crushed the uprising.
