Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7410_M268).

Robert Filliou considered language and words an artist’s most important material. In the 1960s Filliou ran La Galerie légitime (‘The Legitimate Gallery’, exhibiting artworks on his own person) and, together with George Brecht, the gallery La Cédille qui sourit (‘The Smiling Cedilla’). He developed the themes that established him as a leading member of the transatlantic Fluxus movement, to some extent coordinated from New York by the Lithuanian-born George Maciunas: ‘Eternal Network’, ‘Teaching and Learning as Performance Art’, ‘Poï Poï’ (a greeting borrowed the Dogon language), ‘Constant Creation’ and many others.
