With bare feet, in a donkey costume – referring to the movie Peau d’Âne from 1970 – covered in blood, Corinne Masiero entered the stage. The woman had to announce the nominees for the ‘best costume’ category.

She also took that dress off and then stood on stage completely naked with the words ‘no culture no future’ written on her body. On her back was an unmistakable message to French Prime Minister Jean Castex: ‘Rends-nous l’art, Jean!(Give us back the art, Jean!). Or for those who look at it phonetically: Rends-nous l’argent (Give us money back).
