The Green Book contains my collection of national anthems. Each anthem has been hand-written by a different person from his/her native tongue. It’s a very familiar book, a kind of manifest… Of course, the fact that the French anthem has been hissed in the French Stadium stands has relaunched the project. Like this incident, the book expresses a malaise, a social urgency”

Adel Abdessemed, extract of the interview with Guy Tortosa in Le Journal des Arts, n°63, 24 January 2004.
