What does it mean to write This is not a pipe across a bluntly literal painting of a pipe? Reneacute; Magrittes famous canvas provides the starting point for a delightful homage by French philosopher and historian Michel Foucault. Much better known for his incisive and mordant explorations of power and social exclusion, Foucault here assumes a more playful stance. By exploring the nuances and ambiguities of Magrittes visual critique of language, he finds the painter less removed than previously thought from the pioneers of modern abstraction.
