Robert Filliou: Residency

Member of the Fluxus movement, Filliou’s visit affirmed and aquainted the Western Front with some social principles. Filliou had dedicated his Principles of Poetic Economy to Charles Fourier, a 19th century thinker and utopian who before Marx wrote and before Freud was born, succeeded in reconciliating both. Fourier was the precursor of many liberation movements. He thought he had discovered the secret of social harmony – work as play.
