The book is devoted to the artistic work of Jean-Jacques Lebel. The focus is on the happenings of the 1960s, which are documented in numerous illustrations and analyzed in detail by Alyce Mahon, a professor at Cambridge. Texts by Félix Guattari (1988) and Robert Fleck examine Lebel's signature pictorial method of 'montrage' (from 'montage' and the French montrer, 'to show').
