Magazine PALAIS #23: Michel Houellebecq ‘Rester vivant’
PALAIS magazine is dedicating its issue 23 to Michel Houellebecq’s exhibition “Rester vivant”, presented at the Palais de Tokyo from 23 June to 12 September 2016. This is an exceptional event, because it is the first large-scale show devoted to Michel Houellebecq as an artist. This is also a special issue of PALAIS magazine with Michel Houellebecq as guest editor-in-chief.
This issue of PALAIS magazine follows the organisation of the exhibition in chapters. Thanks to a series of unpublished interviews with Michel Houellebecq, a selection of his writings (essays, poems, novel extracts) and texts by guest authors, the issue provides a discovery of his visual universe, and its intertwining with the many creative forms which the writer uses (music, cinema, performance…).
Contents of this issue: photographs and a selection of texts by Michel Houellebecq as well as a series of interviews between Michel Houellebecq and Jean de Loisy, Yan Céh, Robert Combas (edited by Richard Leydier), Benoît Delépine, Nelly Kaprièlian, an essay by Stéphanie Moisdon and portfolios by Robert Combas, Marie-Pierre Gauthier andRenaud Marchand.
