La Lumière Manifeste consists of five lyric poems by Marcel Broodthaers
(three of which with their variations). They were recited by him
to Livinus van de Bundt during the winter of 1962 and would form
the basis of the soundtrack for the film Lumière sur La Haye, dedicated
to Livinus' phoot painting. Unlike the film that was not made,
these poems, reproduced here, have been preserved thanks
to a historical recording."
