Jean-Luc Godard prefaced his exhibition Voyages en utopie with the explanation that it was an intimate voyage that is permeable to the world s upheavals; it is from the tension between these two poles: autobiographical fiction and documentary report that poetry is generated.  A tenuous biographical trajectory is the starting point for this exposition which tries to understand the activity that is theory at the intersection of movements of ideas in the wider world and the narration of the personal. Pushing the boundaries of orthodox academic formats allows the inclusion of an autobiographical dimension which traces the accretion of age/history, not to mention History itself. Booklet issued to accompany exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Spring 2006.
