Michel François in conversation with Thierry de Duve

On the occasion of his solo exhibition Contre nature at Bozar, Brussels

Extract from the film Situation hypothétique à la contre nature by Jean-Paul Jacquet and Loïc Vanderstichelen, filmed on the occasion of Michel François' exhibition Contre nature at Bozar, Brussels.
