The new permanent exhibition (Le définitif – c’est le Provisoire) focuses on the artist Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) and the media impact of his kinetic sculptures and actions.

The show draws to an unprecedented degree on the museum’s unique collection of documents and archive materials.

 The exhibition also offers information on the materiality and functioning of Tinguely’s works, providing interesting insights into their construction, as well as surprising hidden technical details concerning their conservation.

The information includes recent findings concerning the radio sculptures of the 1960s, and approaches to restoring such fragile works as Ballet des pauvres (1961) or the Balubas (from 1961).
