Antonin Artaud torturé par les psychiatres

Isidore Isou - Antonin Artaud torturé par les psychiatres
Through the detailed analysis of Antonin Artaud's psychiatric history, Lettrist master Isidore Isou delivers a real indictment in this singular text which is both an investigation and a pamphlet.
New edition of the text first published by Maurice Lemaître in his review Lettrisme #13 in September 1970.
Isidore Isou (1925, Botosani, Romania – 2007, Paris), the ingenious Romanian poet, artist, economist, novelist, film-maker, choreographer and theoretician, created in 1945 the last avant-garde movement to attempt to overthrow everything – Lettrism, a movement that would embrace personalities as diverse as Gabriel Pomerand, Maurice Lemaître, Gil J Wolman and Guy Debord. Isou is the author of a huge body of work centered on the act of creation, for which he proposed a method, Creatics, which is a systematic approach to understanding and grasping the mechanics of creation.
