Marcel Broodthaers (1924–1976) was the subject of a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the Reina Sofia in Madrid last year. His highly interdisciplinary practice embraced poetry, fiction, art, and cinema. Publications of his work include My Ogre Book, Shadow Theater, Midnight (Siglio); Pense-Bête (Granary); and 10,000 Francs Reward (Printed Matter).
