Le Wonder/Fortin is an artist-run-space, a place managed by and for artists. Our collective occupies large disused complexes in the Parisian suburbs: after a factory of a late battery brand named Wonder (which gave the name of our collective) in Saint-Ouen (93) from 2013 to 2016, the Liebert tower in Bagnolet (93) from 2016 to 2019, the Zénith building in Nanterre (92) from 2019 to 2020, the collective is now located in a former printing house Fortin Le Progrès, a three-floor 3000 sq. meter building in Clichy (92).
The collective shapes the places it occupies and makes them a space for experimentation and emergence of artistic and political thought. 60 artists are currently working there.
Le Wonder is a free, independent and experimental place. A production- as much as a living-space, it is above all a tool contributing to the autonomy and professionalization of its residents from production to exhibition. It offers them low-cost workspace and a pool of shared machines, close to Paris, for large-scale transdisciplinary projects.

The collective has fitted out and rehabilitated a 3000m2 former printing house on 3 levels. It is organized in different production centers, offering collective workshops depending on the practices. An artist from the collective manages each department independently and coordinates with the resident artists. The association regularly invests in order to enrich its production means.
The spaces are:
Le Wonder offers a 1-month research and creation residency for artists of all disciplines, without age or nationality restriction. The research and creation residency offered by Le Wonder does not have to be focused on the production of a specific project. Research and experimentation are encouraged, whether theoretical or formal.
The resident can propose to present the outcome of his/her time at Le Wonder/Fortin in the form of a studio visit, conference, workshop, screening,
banquet or piracy of the FM band.
Le Wonder provides residents housing, an individual studio and well as access to the different production departments according to desire and projects.

Viziradio is a laboratory for sound and radio experimentation, at the heart of the Wonder/Fortin. We go on a ride and we take you with us, in the Vizirmobile, we can also record. We can dream in the parking lots and listen to your purring. We live in great depths beyond the limit of dissolution of limestone. Come and hack your ears with us. As a night official the AM will soon be our feed for white flake fluid.
