La Belle Inutile

La Belle Inutile is a small but essentially international group that was formed in the early 2000s thanks to the deployment of the Internet and the World Wide Web. The particularity of the group is the attention it pays to recent and notable developments in science and technology since the last years of the 20th century, to experimentation and use of digital tools in the artistic field and to the taking into account of recent scientific data in the general and theoretical aspects of surrealism.

La Belle Inutile developed links and friendships with all surrealists who work on a similar playing field and develop similar activities.

In other words, until Capitalism had finished breaking down the whole scope of human activities to suit its own needs in order to regorganized them according to its own perpective.
