With the years Filliou became more attracted to meditation, Taoism and Buddhism. At the same time, he addresses the themes of violence and innocence, war and peace.

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

RF: I have the text for COMMEMOR, but I have to find it. But read to me what you have.

IL: ‘Mixed Commission of Exchanges of Monuments to the Fallen. Created in July 1970 at the Neue Galerie, Aachen, with the goal of solemnly offering the European peoples the possibility to exchange their respective monuments to the fallen. Concerning the countries that think of war in our days, they could exchange their monuments to the previously fallen instead of fighting each other.’
