It is too late for you to participate in the exhibition at Brussels. The text for the catalogue is already at the printer. And then I find that you are not at all founded when you demand guarantees in such a tone.

I do not know if the Apollinaire Gallery is “spatialist” or even worse. Our English comrade doesn’t hang around there. He is no longer its owner: he only goes there to get his mail. But what does it matter? Would you have preferred the address of the Triennale?
Your letter gives the impression of a quite maladroit lack of frankness: you know perfectly well that we have no reason to change our programme; and there was that telegram sent to us from Alba.
I do not know what makes you believe that this style is suitable for dialogue with us. But it is an error.G.-E. Debord
