French photographer gives 6,000 answers on life’s big questions

Artist and activist Yann Arthus-Bertrand told RT about his work, beliefs and his new Moscow exhibition.

Bertrand’s unusual show features 6,000 video interviews with earthlings. It is currently running at Moscow’s Multimedia Art Museum.

The interviewers traveled to 83 countries over several years, asking ordinary people universal questions about life. From Brazilian fishermen to street vendors in China, they all share their thoughts, hopes and fears on camera.

“We went around the planet and had 6,000 interviews asking everyone 40 questions, like what is happiness,” Bertrand said. “What people tell you is brilliant. Happiness is the sense of your life. Then we just put it together.”

So if you are looking for some answers to the big questions, head to the Multimedia Art Museum near Park Kultury metro station. The installation is on until the start of September.
