Fondation du Doute

Interesting
Less a museum, more a living, breathing art space that raises questions about art and its frontiers in keeping with the spirit of its founders. The former Couvent des Minimes is faithful, for example, to the Fluxus spirit (flux is flow in Latin), which since the 1960s seeks to promote non-art with humour and mockery. The foundation exhibits 1,500 works by fifty international artists around one of its inventors and last representatives: the tireless Benjamin Vautier, aka Ben.
