In the context of the exhibition Refus contraire

French Literature researcher Sophie Dubois will study the often ignored writings that accompany Bordua’s famous text, in order to renew our understanding of the Refus global manifesto. Art Historian Ray Ellenwood will look back at the interdisciplinary group known as the Automatists, based on their artistic engagement and collectivity. Throughout these different explorations of the manifesto, the collective history of the group that lead to the publication will be broached, as well as the actual materiality of the Refus global manifesto and its critical reception.
