Jean-Jacques Lebel «La Chose» de Tinguely, quelques philosophes et «Les Avatars de Vénus»

Jean-Jacques Lebel, a pioneer of action art, was the author of the first Happening in Europe on 14 July 1960: L’enterrement de la Chose de Tinguely. His passion for Nietzsche and Bakunin – among other philosophers – meets Tinguely‘s passion for Kropotkin and Bergson. With his video installation Les Avatars de Vénus, he addresses the question of the collective memory of archetypes, which overdetermines the history of the arts from one era to the next and from one culture to the next.
