In the field of photography and the visual arts, Felischer has his work displayed often in galleries and museums all over the world. Prolific in writing as well, he has dozens of published books, from novels to essays on photography and cinema, in some of th most prestigious French publishing houses.

Fleischer is internationally acknowledged as the founder of one of the most reputable visual art schools in the world, the Fresnoy Studio, which has welcomed figures from very different horizons; specifically among filmmakers, they include Chantal Akerman, Bruno Dumont, Raul Ruiz and Jean-Luc Godard.

At 2:30 PM, at Espaço Nimas, Fleischer's film Zoo Zéro will be screened, a film that follows Eva, a singer at a Noah's Ark-themed  nigthclub where visitors wear animal masks.
