PAF has implemented several measures regarding COVID-19, which we ask you to read carefully. Some of those come as rules, others as collective responsibilities.


PAF is based in St Erme, 150km north-east of Paris, France, between Reims and Laon.


In March 2020, PAF had to close its doors. After a period of global uncertainty, we carefully reopened in the summer. Since then PAF has proven to be a covid-safe, and pleasant place for work, thanks to its abundance of facilities.

SPRING MEETING 2021, 28 September – 3 October: Intercessors, ventriloquists, thieves, anon. On Art’s Divestment of the Self

IMPORTANT! If you wrote us an email and your stay hasn't been confirmed via contactpaf@gmail.com, your spot is not reserved and you should contact us ASAP. Since the announcement went out in July 2021, we have had a change of guests (see below).

This gathering, originally planned for SpringMeeting 2020, now takes place in two parts: the first this autumn, and the second in April 2022. In the many months since we began this undertaking, the themes have lost none of their relevance. Can aesthetic practice divest from the self? If so, how? This is an invitation to abandon, mediate, forge and falsify selves.
