Daniel Buren accepted the invitation from the City of Istres to intervene in the city, where he proposed in situ works, moveable works, ephemeral works, temporary works and permanent works. Gilles Coudert’s film follows the construction process through which these works emerged. It records the words of many of the people involved in the creative process and shows how visitors interact with the works both on a daily basis and during special events. In his interview with Gilles Coudert, Bernard Blistène, director of the Musée national d’art moderne, discusses his analysis of Buren’s art, provides keys to understanding his works and discusses Buren’s place in the history of art.
