Philippe Thomas. Readymades belong to everyone

On the occasion of the exhibition Philippe Thomas - the readymade pertenecen a all, the MACBA, in collaboration with the Institut Français in Barcelona, has organized a cycle of films that have had an influence on the artist's work.
Philippe Thomas' interest in the cinema is centred on a series of films half way between the popular commercial cinema and so-called cine experimental or avant-garde film. Between these two types of cinema Philippe Thomas posits a third category, the auteur film, also llamed cine of quality. Directors such as Ozu, Ray, Hitchcock, Eustache, Truffaut, etc. give us in their films a homogeneous universe, a world of fiction closed in on itself, a universe that generates in the spectator a sense of frustration that is mixed with a certain fascination and which, according to the artist, may well be the origin of an ambiguous relation between the visual arts and the cinema.
