A film produced at the moment of retrospective by Xavier le Roy in 2014 in centre Pompidou, Paris. The film was shot and edited during the exhibition and shown close to its end. It is centered on the many different ways of looking and being looked at that intermingle in a museum: the gazes of visitors, outsiders, people at the opening, friends, passers-by, tourists, etc. communicate and collide with the different types of seeing that the museum summarize: what does it mean to watch? What does it mean to make a picture? What does it mean to reproduce? What does it mean to understand a form or a movement?

And it leads to another question: who is inside and who is outside?
