No one was more supportive of this than Winston Churchill. Meanwhile the French foreign minister, Robert Schuman, was preparing a plan of his own, entirely in secret and without consultation with London. The Parliament can sometimes delay or block legislation. The Schuman Plan proposed total European integration — political, economic and military.
Its main purpose was to fund groups working for European unity — and its funding came from the CIA. The European Movement was a leading beneficiary of its generosity.

In the early stages, control over this money was given to Sandys. But by July he had become disillusioned and abandoned the leadership and the movement. Given that Sandys would have been working closely with his father-in-law, this implies that, shortly before Churchill became Prime Minister for the second time, the U. But in February President Eisenhower helped make his mind up, warning Macmillan that the Special Relationship would decline if London did not sign up to the European Economic Community.
Finally, Macmillan caved in. By the end of that year he had decided Britain must apply to join — even though to do so was completely against public opinion. In , Britain finally applied to become a member of the EEC. At a crucial stage in the negotiations the French suddenly produced, without warning, a proposal for a new levy on import tariffs.
This meant Britain, whose geography would make it by far the biggest food importer, would see its budget contribution rise hugely, with no refunds allowed. Macmillan and de Gaulle met at the end of that year, but de Gaulle was intransigent. The prime minister left, almost in tears, wondering how on earth he was going to get us into Europe. Kennedy to supply Polaris missiles — not just to Britain but also to France. Surely that would do it.
Indeed it would, said the French foreign minister, Maurice Couve de Murville, who promised Macmillan there would be no veto on our membership.

It may be useful to consider them as independent cultural objects in mobility. The principal concern for this project was the politicization of texts and performances by epistemic communities as a means toward specific purposes such as accentuation of cultural identity and Nationalist ideologies.
Jallo approaches this topic with the idea that the principal factor accountable for drama in transnationalism is a paradigmatic shift from traditional theatre to literary theatre. Ultimately the project investigates the modes of deterritorialization of the space of performance and how temporarily, the idea of rootedness is transformed into the habitation of a new space.
Any door, even one that is open, marks a separation of the inside to the outside. In his project Approaches, Ryo Abe wanted to imagine a natural architecture, leaving behind ideas of borders. Port-Miou, this immense "interstice" more or less abandoned to nature where people pass through rather than stop to appreciate, has the potential to let us imagine a symbiosis between human and nature, offering an experience as opposed to a simple entry point. A thread that reinterprets our relationship with nature. Certain boundaries are passed more obviously than others: the end of the tarmac, that of the marked track… but the thread serves to link past, present and future, creating a bridge between the users of the park to the biodiversity and landscape.
Port-Miou could be landscaped with the help of residents, researchers and park users to offer a complete "summary" of all the calanques: large open spaces in front of the sea; pathways that lead us away from the town and invite us to become encompassed by nature; an access to the sea-front; to information on biodiversity, history and patrimony; a recreational point; a space for both scientific study and culture. In , the seed for this vast project has been planted.
In , Ryo Abe is back to pursue this work. What if, instead of being simply a space that we pass through to reach the calanques further along, this old industrial site that the pines try to hide, abandoned but never reintegrated back into nature, became an experimental garden?
More titles to consider
The idea has already begun to grow through those who have met and discussed with Ryo Abe. It is taking root by our desire to welcome and to feel welcomed by nature. Over the last decades, scientists have been arguing about the existence of a form of communication between plants: apparently, plants transmit information through electrical signals and chemistry. Happening beyond human perception, this communication could be one of the many phenomena that occur in the invisible part of our environment.
At Camargo, Julien Clauss plans to observe indirectly plant communication to create an aesthetic experience for the public: participatory readings via community radio, video streaming of infrared observations, and paintings made of toxic waste. Tales of Vegetable Beings is a work that explores human-plant entanglements.

The title at once refers to the plants as beings themselves and the many ways of being together with plants. The work act as a survey of exchanges between humans and the vegetable realm, which reframes plants not as inert objects but as active agents playing important roles in the economic, social, and emotional lives of humans. The aim is to highlight the incredible two-way relationships, formed deep in our evolutionary past, that have left plant signatures in humans and human signatures in plants and reveal the ways in which we are deeply entangled with and dependent upon the non-human world around us.
During her residency at Camargo, Katie Holten further developed her Stone Alphabet project, an attempt to create a language beyond the human. A member of Generation Anthropocene, Holten believes there is a vital need for pioneering research to visualise and help solve the challenges affecting interconnected systems of society and ecosystems. She will attempt to draw out an "unconscious alphabet" from the Karst landscape of the Calanques. Stones leak layers of infinite knowledge. Reading and writing the stones, Holten returned to earliest forms of human communication, drawing out history, stories, lines, and letters.
With an investigative approach, the artist conducted research on the history of the area and its uses until now. Working on drawings and photos, but also on sound recording, the idea was to collaborate with researchers to develop new projects related to the macro- and micro-scale of this area.
During the residency The Calanques , Shanta Rao explored the world of jellyfish, whose growing presence on the beaches of the Calanques National Park poses questions of otherness, highlighting the link between humans and other animal species. These studies sought to compare various sculptural and scientific research.

Beyond being repurposed as a spot for resting and rejuvenation, Puerto Rico hosts a base for a top-secret laboratory where the invaders develop a powerful new weapon that has the ability to extract water from other planets, leaving devastating droughts in its wake. In this new environment, Tony Tacon has no choice but to leave his glorious glitter shell and reinvent themselves with Nature. The appeal of the exotic new land spreads to other planets.

Composing a new language in the form of music, the goal is not to walk down the path of least resistance or to fit into a box, but to put a powerful life symbol of humanity and rebellion into this world. Thomas Bellinck has intended to spend a big part of in the Aix-Marseille area, in order to develop a Euro-Mediterranean research project that will bring together current and future projects; to work with old and new residents of the area; to present some of these projects to local cultural organizations.
Thomas was in residence at the Camargo Foundation during several periods, during which he mainly focused on his research. The artist has of course moved around in the region, but Camargo has been his base, providing him with the possibility of inviting fellow researchers of the area with whom he has collaborated during his time in France. All around the world, collective existence is disappearing, replaced by exclusive communities. What constitutes society?
