Punk is not dead

Punk was a musical and counter-cultural movement which has now achieved subject of study profile for researchers. Since 2013, musicologists and historians have been working together on a programme called "Punk is not dead", which aims to retrace 40 years of punk history in France. The very nature of this movement, with its ideology of make-do living, makes it urgent today to collect and preserve punk archives. Relying on calls for donations, study days and oral testimonies, researchers managed to collect valuable materials.
The documents thus collected will eventually be used to create a resource and research centre dedicated to alternative cultures. A House of Punk. More than a heritage conservation programme, the heart of the project is to reflect on this counter-culture and to study the fringes of our society in order to write an off-mainstream history.
