What does it mean to write This is not a pipe across a bluntly literal painting of a pipe? Reneacute; Magritte's famous canvas provides the starting point for a delightful homage by the French philosopher-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 Magritte's visual critique of language, he finds the painter less removed than previously thought from the pioneers of modern abstractionconfronting them and within a common system, a figure at once opposed and complementary. Foucault's brief but extraordinarily rich essay offers a startling, highly provocative view of a painter whose influence and popularity continue to grow unchecked.This is Not a Pipealso throws a new, piquantly dancing light on Foucault himself.
