Description: 
Concerning this action, the announcement was undoubtedly more symbolic than actually scheduled. Rehabilitation was, without expressing it, assertion. It seems to me that Robert (and thus us) rather spoke about “pub geniuses”, and Filliou thus insisted on the fact that artists could be met and ideas exchanged in small bars. (Coffee seems more select than the neighborhood’s pub). Next to the Hall, near Ben’s shop; the Eden Bar was the place to be at the time, and if actions were to take place, they would happen several times for the whole duration of the Hall des remises en question (the Hall of questioning). (In my personal catalogue of the Mamac exhibition, I wanted to include a picture, shot at the Eden Bar, with Marianne and Robert Filliou, Mérino, Chubac and I. Bozzi might have been in front of us, as well as Erébo…I think the picture is Michou Strauch’s, she might have shot several other ones, from different angles.)
