When this quest is institutionalized by associations considered as organs of the French government we can question the agenda of such groups, their legitimacy while wondering to who their existence does benefits to. This project was written and based upon discussion-interviews with Francoise Verges—French political scientist, historian and feminist; Mathieu Renault—Doctorate in political philosophy and Dominique Sopo—Head of SOS Racisme.

104 Words About Mobility is built upon the formal analysis of a collection of 20 essays on that same topic. As an attempt to engage differently with textual content, this project proceeds to a systematic deconstruction of each essay based on the occurrence of specific terms. Emphasizing on repetitions in order to extract a dominant language—paradigm from its material later re-organized and classified resulting in the proposal of a new narrative.
