During the 2012 Monumenta event at the Grand Palais in Paris, Daniel Buren created “Excentrique(s), travail in situ” (“Eccentric, Work in situ”). Discussions with partners to the project such as Patrick Bouchain, architect; Marc Sanchez, commissioner; Alexandre Meyer, musician; Guy Lelong, critic and author, provide insights to the work. Through portraits of the people working on the installation and interviews with the public experiencing the event, this documentary film shows the hidden face of the exhibition and the very human dimension of this monumental undertaking. There is also footage of the different artistic events Daniel Buren proposed during the exhibition.
