Winner of the 2017 Flore prize for "L'invention des corps" (Actes Sud), Pierre Ducrozet (born in 1982) published Eroica in 2015. This fictionalised biography of Basquiat is both a panorama of bohemian New York and an attempt to retrace Basquiat's painting in his writing. Accompanied by a soundtrack by David Gonzàlez Cambray, Ducrozet will give a reading in front of works by the artist.
