An artists’ squat on rue de la Grange-aux-Belles.

A building that formerly housed a company named «Société Chimique de Clichy», across the street from Hôpital Saint-Louis at 31, rue de la Grange-aux-Belles, squatted by 15 artists in August 1995, closed June 8th 2000 and subsequently renovated. The squat was closed by police and bricked up despite a good reputation, close cooperation with the neighbors, and art workshops for their children.
