Home Sweet Home brings together thirty artists of all generations who allow us to share the intimacy and the everyday life of Britain from the 1970s to the present day. A look around the property that sheds light from different angles on the social, cultural and political realities, past and present, of British society.

The British's attachment to their homes has continued to assert itself since the early nineteenth century, becoming an important component of their identity. The English language has invented the words comfort and comfortable, words imported into French because nothing better expressed the link between the well-being of soul and body and the domestic interior. What's better than the theme of the home, the home so dear to the heart of the British, to highlight the richness, the diversity and the development of photography across the Channel?
