During fifteen days of the program we move out of our office into the former bookshop of the National Centre of Contemporary Art in order to transform it into a space of life and work - « agencement ».
The place of information, documentation and video-projection, it was conceived as a place of usage by the visitors. Documentation about the events of the program and the participants, as well as the library with books that had been important for our research, are put at free disposal. There are reformulated and presented the events of the precedent days. For example, an open-air market that had taken place on the 3 of June is presented in the form of the video beside the products of local farmers we had taken to put on sale, the paper bags and the stages of their elaboration by Free Soil, information about Free Soil and the farmers participated in the market. The projection of the video Au rez-de-chausée de la ville (At the Ground Level of the City), which is a documentation of the project ECObox by Doina Petrescu and Constantin Petcou, and of the video Alerte à Babylone (Alert Babylon) by Jean Druon, which gives a critical view on the technical progress and presents the struggle against new technologies, are also put on viewing here. Agencement is organized as an open access  space where visitors could discover the project, make a xerocopy of a text and take a cup of tea inside or on the terrace.
