Description: 
The day begins with a Mass: The celebrant, Marcel Bataillard, reads the mail from the readers of Strange magazine upon the death of Captain America. Frédérik Brandi is at the organ. The communion is Jésus de Lyon (a specialty of sausage) with an image of the Blessed Virgin proudly bearing a portrait of Che Guevara on her chest.

The Sunday dinner, chopped and fried Barbie dolls, is served in the garden on a long red cloth.

The day ends with a mandatory concert indoors: two drum sets, a kazoo, a trumpet, and various other instruments; the doors are closed and bolted. The band plays The Long March, composed by jazz percussionist Max Roach to honor the death of Mao Tse- tung.
Mass, Sunday dinner, concert, fun and entertainment. A trying day at the end of which Ben Vautier (again) declared, “I don’t know what to think of it. Either it’s completely idiotic or it’s completely ingenious, but it can’t be somewhere in between.”
