Nicolas Schöffer

First as a painter, then sculptor, town planner, architect, theoretician of art, Nicolas Schöffer was one of the most important artists of the second half of twentieth century. Non-commercial artist, he is less known than others, for, devoted to artistic fundamental research, he creates, above all, at the scale of towns, in which he wants to give back to mankind life pleasure shielded from all kinds of visual and acoustic pollution.

Father of Cybernetic Art, thus of so-called "interactivity", he wanted to bring a prospective and non-backward-looking vision of art, which could help mankind to develop itself with a good hold on true creative and liberating possibilities of our times. Exhibitions, interviews, shows, movies, teaching, monumental sculptures and 10 published books forms the legacy of this exceptional artist and his exceptional work.
