Space of formless in Ankoku Butoh, another humanity. From page 275 to 299 in :

Monstres contemporains - ISBN : 978-2-84835-320-3 - under supervision of : Céline Masson et Catherine Desprats-Péquignot

What are the new Golem, new Frankenstein? What are the Stalking Cat and other physical transformations? The modernity knows a myriad of "monsters". Man did not stop representing it, imagining it, then, with the development of science, trying to produce it - (...) The red wire of this work is the question of the body ; showing in these created figures the contemporary scene, whether science is represented by the artists art work or by the medicine which re-questions the forms of the living. A reflection in the articulation of the artistic creation and literature as reflection of the society, the new forms of medicine and psychoanalysis.

Introduction to "The Autobiography of Abel Pann" Ed.du Cerf 1996

Pann was a Jewish painter of Russian origin. Born in 1883, he emigrated in 1905 to Paris. He lived at la Ruche and Montparnasse, and attended the famous " École de Paris". He was a cartoonist, a caricaturist and a painter. He emigrated to Jerusalem in 1920 and became "the Bible's only Jewish painter". This introduction provides an opportunity for a brief history of Jewish artists, mainly emigrants from Eastern Europe at the beginning of the 20th Century in Paris, and an overview of life in the "Holy Land" before the State of Israel was created.

The success and public interest in the project have prompted the writing of this book. Meetings with Sogyal Rimpoché, Alessandro Jodorovsky, André Chouraqui among others.
