His interaction and collaboration with JB dates back in the 1960s. He relates JB's personality and acting to the idea of an authority based on both individual autonomy and collaboration between diversities.

About the ampliation of the concept of art, artistic practice as a form of teaching, and everything which will have to become art in the future.

Foot washing, sound production, film projections, handling with blackboards, collecting of jellies, silence and baptism.
