Ayant la chance de traverser la cour
de la Fondation du Doute toutes les semaines,
nous n'avons pas résisté à l'envie
de vous faire découvrir cet endroit,
devenu passage incontournable à Blois

et que les blésois nomment communément :


~ "LE MUR DE BEN" ~

 

 

A son origine : une commande publique de la Ville de Blois
et du Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication
passée à l'artiste Ben (Benjamin Vautier), inaugurée en 1995.

Sur ce mur de 30 mètres de long et 12 mètres de haut,
Ben a rassemblé ses principaux tableaux-écritures
depuis les années 1960,
reproduits sur 313 plaques émaillées
fixées sur les 2 façades du bâtiment.

 

L'artiste a écrit la vie avec le mur des mots
en multipliant les sentences sur l'art, la vie, les choses ...


la Cour du Doute ...

 

~ LE BATIMENT ~

C’est dans le Bourg-Neuf que fut élevé le couvent des Minimes en 1619.
Après la Révolution, le bâtiment fut occupé
par différents établissements :
petit séminaire en 1818,
école primaire supérieure de jeunes filles en 1908,
collège de filles et annexe de lycée en 1945
avant l’implantation du Conservatoire,
de l'École des Beaux-Arts et de l'Harmonie de Blois.

 

Depuis 2013, il abrite également


~ LA FONDATION DU DOUTE ~

~ ET LE CAFE "LE FLUXUS" ~

As we have the luck to cross the courtyard
of the Foundation of Doubt every week,
we did not resist the urge
to make you discover this place,
that became a must see in Blois
and that people living there usually called:


~ "THE WALL OF BEN" ~

 

 

At its origin: a public order from the City of Blois
and from the Ministry of the Culture and Communication
to the artiste Ben (Benjamin Vautier), openned in 1995.

 

On this 30 meter long and 12 meter high wall,
Ben gathered his main paintings-writings
since the sixties,
reproduced on 313 enamel plates
fixed on both front of the building.

 

The artist wrote the life with the wall of words
by multiplying maxim on art, life, things…


the Courtyard of Doubt ...

 

~ THE BUILDING ~

It is in the New-Village that were erected the convent of the Minimes in 1619.
After the Revolution, the building was occupied
by different establishments:
small seminars in 1818,
young girl first school in 1908,
girl secondary school and highschool annex in 1945
before the setting-up of the Conservatory,
of the Fine Arts School and of the Harmony of Blois.

 

 

Since 2013, it hosts too


~ THE FOUNDATION OF DOUBT ~

~ AND THE CAFE "LE FLUXUS" ~
