“Siegelaub published and distributed the trilingual catalogue of this seminal exhibition, which a friend, the French art critic Michel Claura, had organized by mailing an invitation to twenty-two artists to submit one project proposal each. The proposed contributions were circulated among all the participants, who were then permitted to alter their initial ideas and submit another proposal. The catalogue, with a preface and a postface by Claura, included both the first and the second proposal by each of the eighteen artists who responded to the call. The few works that did not exist only as text in the catalogue were presented in the exhibition space, the non-traditional setting of a rented film studio in the center of Paris, which Claura had chosen because it was not a traditional gallery space but had white walls. Claura’s project was reviewed in the French press under the headline “L’avant-garde à la Mouffe” (Les Lettres françaises 1331), and the curator was quoted as saying that the “exhibition at hand is not conceptual,” although it operated according to a “mechanism” that questioned the format of the group show” (Coelewij - Martinetti)
