Le trou

On 7 November 1988, Nord-Matin published a full-page tribute to Professor Vilem Flusser by Fred Forest entitled "Le trou" ("The Hole").

As part of the TF1 news programme, Bruno Masure, the presenter known for his humour, played along with the artist. Fred Forest dedicated this page, called "Le trou", to Professor Vilém Flusser. During a conference in Toulon, Professor Vilem Flusser had pointed to Fred Forest and said, "You see this guy, he makes holes in the media" (an allusion to his Space media).
