Another Journal challenges the notion of normality. This project is a collective work, created by a group of mentally disabled people in Marseille. The project stands on the border between sickness and health, artist and amateur. These powerful visions break down the walls. There is a silverline between the inner-self and the outside world. Undefinable feelings emerge. This book is the result of a four-year collective artistic experience, initiated by the Un Autre Journal project, launched after Stephanos Mangriotis, a photographer, Carole Coquantif, a nurse, and Charlotte Lenoir, a psychiatrist, met, led by the shared desire to offer a safe space of expression that would go further than a basic daily workshop. Each participant was given a camera to take pictures of their daily life. Weekly meeting were organized outside of the hospital to look at and discuss their work.
