Overview

This previously unpublished Broodthaers project was conceived in 1970, in reaction to the 1968 publication of the now famous Michel Foucault book-length essay This is Not a Pipe.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.
