It is also an international art movement.
"Emergency Room's heart is a room where non apathetic artists run to express opinions about the emergencies of today, today before it is too late. Artist are THE visuals experts and have statements on fire to exhibit immediately, now, while their comments can have effects.
Critics and remarks are welcome in democracy, but to have pertinence they have to be done in good time. Not in Delay."
- Thierry Geoffrey/ Colonel
Every day the artists arrive with new works, and the exhibition changes at 12 PM. This is called "The Passage". After hanging their works, the artists explain their 'Emergency' of that day and afterwards fellow artist and the audience debate the different works and emergencies. The works from previous days are exhibited in the Delay Museum surrounding the Emergency Room.
