Catalogue Note

"The idea of the 'Mires' is one of philosophical time. It is radical, it implies totally negating the word and reconstituting thought from the starting point of completely new givens and mechanisms."
Jean Dubuffet
Exh. Cat., Venice, Biennale de Venise, Pavillon français, Mires, 1983-84, n.p.
