Published every 15 days during the French university year, October to May, Revue Faire is a vital addition to the small selection of journals addressing graphic design from a critical standpoint.

Every issue has a different subject and visual theme. Issue 36 explores 'Photography suspended: Herbert Bayer.'

‘The trend of exhibiting photography, and more specifically documentary photography, was clearly established in 1951 with three exhibitions: ‘The new Landscape’ by György Kepes at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, ‘Architettura, misura dell’uomo’ (9th Triennial of Milan) by Ernesto N. Rogers, Vittorio Gregotti and Giotto Stoppino, and ‘Parallel of Life and Art’ at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in London.

'The documentation of these three exhibitions played an essential role in the development of the modes of exhibition of photography. Like the MoMA exhibitions Road to Victory and Airway to Peace, staged by Herbert Bayer, they contribute to thinking that was developed masterfully in the book Display by Georges Nelson, published in 1956.'
