On an initiative of the Ministry of Culture, the National Center for Arts (Cnap), in partnership with the Marseille Photographic Center and the Regional Museum of Contemporary Art Occitanie in Sérignan, launched in June 2022 a call for applications within the framework of a national photographic commission entitled PERFORMANCE.
Open to a diversity of photographic practices, the call for applications was addressed to photographers working in the broad field of images and invited them to take up the theme of sport echoing our world, its contemporary issues and its relationship with new representations of the performative body, within the framework of the Olympiads of Culture organized in preparation for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Following this call for applications, the selection committee selected ten winning photographers:
Laurence AËGERTER, The allegorical mountain

Yassine BOUSSAADOUN, untitled
Suzanne HETZEL, Winged Rock. A path to slow sport
Mana KIKUTA, What we lack / innovation, body and freedom
