Don’t Do It, conceived by John M Armleder (1948, Geneva) for MAMCO, was a projectreflecting upon ways to exhibit, rather than only on works exhibited. Taking up three consecutive spaces, in the first room a hodgepodge of objects were piled together in a corner, all referencing artists through their signature works (mussels for Broodthaers, a snow shovel and a bicycle wheel for Duchamp, etc.). The second room, painted pink with green dots, diplayed paintings that all contained round motifs (James Welling, Peter Hopkins, Beat Huber, Francis Baudevin, Neil Campbell, Luc Aubort). Finally, in the third room, television screens apparently linked to surveillance cameras showed a fixed shot of works exposed elsewhere in the museum.
