"I like to say that I work on miscellaneous facts. Thus, in one of my works in homage to the Série noire, I invented myself a cover with Louis Althusser strangling Nina Kandinsky (1981). In my work, the narrative is linked to a political dimension. For example, as early as issue 2 of The Situationist Times in 1962, I wrote an article about Dutch colonialism. Recently I did a series, War, which compares the use of chemical bombing in World War I to the war in Syria. At the time of the situationists, we were all against the war in Algeria, against the war in Vietnam: we were all on the left, but not as politicized as history tells us. In May '68, my best way to fight was to make posters."
