Based on Broodthaers' interpretation, this book examines Mallarme's influence on such seminal figures of modernity as Artaud and Apollinaire, reinterpreting many 20th-century art movements (from cubism to the historical avant-garde movements to the art of the seventies), and questions the very idea of modernity. The catalog's contents are highly varied: in addition to an essay by Jean-Francois Chevrier, the publication includes abundant documentary material, poetry and other literary texts, as well as reproductions of the works from the exhibition.
