MICHEL BUTOR | DAN GRAHAM: CONVERSATION. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 72 pp. 17 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783956791208 In English.
Publisher's description: In the fall of 2013, American conceptual artist Dan Graham and his partner artist Meiko Meguro traveled with writer Donatien Grau to Lucinges, France, to meet with renowned French writer Michel Butor at his home. Their informal, intimate and at times humorous conversation, transcribed in this slim pocket-sized book, ranges over the ideas influencing emerging artists and post-abstract expressionists of the 1960s. The interview is bookended with a brief introduction by French cultural critic Donatien Grau and a riff by artist-writer Paul McCarthy. One of the foremost innovators of postwar literature, writer-thinker Michel Butor redefined the novel with his book Second Thoughts (1957), and further developed new forms with Mobile (1962). The rigorous symmetries Butor's writing exemplified led Roland Barthes to praise him as an epitome of structuralism, but with a lyrical sensibility more akin to Baudelaire than Robbe-Grillet.
