Le M2 à la Fondation De Appel

In 1979 Fred Forest was the subject of a video exhibition and his Territoire du M2 at the De Appel Foundation in Amsterdam.

At the time, this institution played an important role in international contemporary art, and for Fred Forest it was a major recognition at a time when official art circles were keeping him at a distance.

Unfortunately, his entire management team disappeared some time later in a tragic plane crash.
