Synopsis: This previously unpublished Broodthaers project was conceived in 1970, in reaction to the 1968 publication of the now famous Michel Foucault book-length essay This is Not a Pipe. The Magritte painting "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" which sparked this debate was of paramount importance to Broodthaers, opening up lasting themes and avenues of exploration in his work: "this pipe stands at the beginning of my adventure," he once declared. Reconstituted through fragments recovered from the original project, which Broodthaers aborted in 1972, this book returns to the core of Broodthaers' complex artistic questioning and its entanglement with post-structuralist discourse.
About the Author: Belgian painter, sculptor, printmaker, draughtsman, filmmaker, and poet, Marcel Broodthaers was born in Brussels in 1924. With no artistic training he turned to visual art in 1964 as an ironic gesture, and spent the 11 remaining years before his death establishing himself, in more than 70 one-man exhibitions, as an artist of influential attitude and approach.
