Une question de curseur: un entretien sur NogegoN

Interview from 1990 with François Schuiten by Jan Baetens about NogegoN.

“In this interview, the author, well-known for his collaboration with Benoît Peeters in the Dark Cities series (since 1983), reflects upon the genesis and stakes of NogegoN, a visual palindrome he wrote with his brother Luc, specialized in utopian architecture. Schuiten explains how the form as well as the meaning of this book on absolute symmetry are in the very first place a reflection on human freedom and creativity.”
