Burning Man

In 1986, a group of artists, burns the tall sculpture of a man in California before settling their successful artistic festival in 1990 in the Black Rock Desert, in Nevada. Inspired by the independent spirit of the Dada movement, the festival has since established itself as a free, dynamic, artistic and anarchic celebration that attracts visitors from all around the world. Burning Man is an incredible monumental sculpture exhibition with mobile metal rhinoceroses, dinosaurs, eccentric bicycles and wooden chariots as well as a majestic 33 meters Man - entitled Burning Man because of its sacrificial blazing at the end of the festival. The festival-goers are as much nostalgic hippies than the Silicon Valley’s elite that arrives on the site with its private jets and resides in VIP campsites - an irony when we consider the original anti-capitalistic vibe of the festival. Nonetheless all these Mad Max-like individuals mingle a half-naked or naked population that participates to the world’s largest rave party. An ephemeral lost city, Burning Man resonates with fashionable values such as freedom of expression, anti-consumerism, self-reliance and respect of the environment - a sandstorm tinted Woodstock that entertains the rich and wealthy that have standardized counterculture.
