Research on the Origin

Robert Filliou

Multiple, 32 × 10 × 9.3 cm.
Materials: offset print on blue graph paper

Collection: Collection Stiftung Maria und Walter Schnepel, Budapest.

Filliou proposes that ‘research is not the privilege of those who know, but the domain of those who don’t know’. He sees research in general, and artistic research in particular, as our best chance to live our lives in a spirit of curiosity and experimentation.

Excerpt of the conversation between Robert Filliou (RF) and Irmeline Lebeer (IL), Flayosc, France, August 1976.

RF: When the work was shown, we should have taken pictures. I’d have liked to make a catalogue, as for Research on the Origin. So few people have seen Research on the Origin, but since I made the catalogue like this I’ve been able to distribute it.
