L’Effet papillon, 1989-2007, Centre d’édition contemporaine, Geneva, 2008, presented by Véronique Bacchetta and her guest, Philippe Cuenat
« This publication retraces through its archives the history and evolution of a particular place – the Centre d’édition contemporaine –, its productions and artistic choices. It defines its place, its position and engagement in the field of contemporary art. » Véronique Bacchetta, director of the CEC, Meret Oppenheim Prize 2007.
