As prolific as it was controversially excessive, the work of Isidore Isou (1925-2007) is that of an intellectual, a poet, a film-maker and an artist. The founder of Lettrism, Isou advocated a total renewal of the arts, before designing a system to revolutionise the entire field of science. Isou moved from Romania to France just after the war and rapidly built around himself the community which is now considered to be the last of the Parisian avant-garde.
