Synopsis:
Belgium is a country well noted for its 'vagueness' and taking this into account, these two Belgian films delve into the world of 'quasi' cultural forms. One of the vaguest notions in the cultural lexicon is that of the 'collective' and these films reconstitute,  through a nonhierarchical, system of montage, collective art actions in Belgium and their intersection with the dominant and subcultural political and cultural ideologies that brushed against them.
These films are neither obituaries for cultural idealism nor bittersweet tales of lost Utopian dreams, but a series of encounters raising questions about the collective archetypes which emerged during their research and shooting :  ranging from micro-institution, family,  enterprise,  political party to the orgy.   Alain Resnais stated that "Is it alive, or is it dead?"  was the only question worth asking about art and these films uses their medium as a tool of research to consider the worth and worthlessness of history.
