The Art of mont(r)age


In 2009, La Maison Rouge presented an exhibition of a new kind : Soulèvements (Uprisings), dedicated to Jean-Jacques Lebel and curated by Jean de Loisy. A giant and protean installation tackling the principal axis of the visual, poetic and political activities of this extraordinary artist, a polyglot and practitioner of rhizome.

Explorer of miscellaneous worlds, conceiver of happenings, organizer of collective and transcultural events, partisan of the universalized Dadaisation, destroyer of boundaries of all kind, leading figure to a young generation of artists, this DVD deploys all his facets.

Directed by Danielle Schirman and starring congenial friends, the film witnesses of an undertaking that is rare due to its interdisciplinarity and libertarian request.
