ACRCIT may be an incitement
by Kelvin Smith
There’s a big exhibition of Guy de Coincet’s art at the M Museum in Leuven, and they have reprinted his ACRCIT newspaper and are giving it away – as he did. The work ‘presents an overview of the different systems underpinning his drawings and books, such as crossword puzzles, mirror writing, number series, Morse code, Braille and decorative motifs.’
Could a work of this sort ever be banned or censored, or, even more intriguingly, what might happen if it were redacted by a suspicious officialdom? After all, it could be a code, a secret message, an incitement of some sort.
