Aguigui Mouna, and his followers. Paris, 1968

Born André Dupont (1911-1999), Aguigui Mouna's first manifesto was to remain on a tree for 16 hours in Golfe-Juan in 1956. Known in Paris all around the "Quartier Latin" (universities district in Paris), you often saw him on a bicycle with a red phone, selling his self-edited mag "Le Mouna Frères". He was nominated "chevalier des Arts et des Lettres" by the minister of Culture Jack Lang. His philosophy was a mix of anarchism, ecology, peace and humour!
(Phtograph by Simos Tsapnidis,1968)
