Jisbar was asked to participate in the “Addenda” exhibition which highlighted the fight against racism and antisemitism through art. The exhibition took place inside the National Museum for the History of Immigration in Paris. For this event, Jisbar covered far-right propaganda posters with a fresco portraying love and international unity. On top of a gigantic heart tag filled with the word “love” painted over and over again like a mantra, he reinterpreted the famous depiction of The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo to convey the power of people coming together. The opening was also an opportunity for Jisbar to present his piece to the then French President in power François Hollande who inaugurated the exhibition.
