Edited by Patrice Chappuis

Within the redesign of the magazine in 1972, L’Estampille art et artisanat introduced with Reportage de Prestige, a new column that featured different contributors on a changing topic for each issue.

Chris Marker was the first guest in this new column, introducing with FAUT VOIR his Musée Imaginaire to the readers, which consists of a short text and eleven stunning photographs. The idea of a Musée Imaginaire is actually linked to André Malraux’s book triology Musée Imaginaire, which in turn has its direct role model in André Vigneau’s Encyclopédie photographique de l’art.

In Immemory and his short film Pictures at an Exhibition from 2008, Marker revisits the theme of the Musée Imaginaire that can be traced back to FAUT VOIR.
