The 2012 edition of Monumenta at the Grand Palais in Paris was devoted to Daniel Buren. His monumental installation departs from his distinctive style of alternating stripes to use circular, multicoloured shapes suspended in space. Artist Daniel Buren, architect Patrick Bouchain and curator Marc Sanchez provide insight into the issues involved in this work. The film shows the mounting of the exhibition and its human dimension, the work’s relationship with the public and the program of artistic events it generated.
