Paul McCarthy in conversation with Julien Bismuth and Mike Bouchet

Filmed at Flagey, Brussels on the occasion of Paul McCarthy's latest exhibition

On the occasion of Paul McCarthy’s latest exhibition at the gallery (2023) three films by the artist were screened at Flagey Brussels. The first one, CSSC — It Begins The Coach The Skull, was accompanied by a conversation with Julien Bismuth and Mike Bouchet.

“Yes, maybe it’s an appropriation of Hollywood studio, but it’s really about the studio. This idea of being in the studio. I’m not as aware of the audience; I don’t think as much about them, so it becomes sort of a looping process in my own psyche in a certain way. So, it goes over time, whatever this is. This is moving in a direction for 40 years. This is where it got me. ” — Paul McCarthy
