elements for a discussion after the end of neons in exhibitions



A philosopher speaks about objects laid out on a table. These objects are selected according to the capacity which they have to incarnate a possible "matter of thought", cas de pensée, for the system defended by this philosopher. The objects laid out form a display. Each display is one of the projection I can try to make of the thought that is attach in the name of this philosopher. To bring a philosopher to a discussion wich is taking as a starting point some objects laid out on a table is a specific type of discussion, this discussion can be the subject of a sound and/or a visual documentation. One moment of the history of conceptual art can be understood as its transformation within the frame of another discipline, the temptation of the philosophical frame is one of its principal possible decays.
