Isidore Isou, influences, proximities and prolongations. Several generations of artists testify via artworks, manifestations, books and documents.

Isidore Isou's influence on his contemporaries appears in various forms including documents, artworks and magazine articles reporting on his controversial ideas. However, his influence extends beyond his time and is exemplified in a phrase he often used to end his talks : "… until we reach a paradisical society in the cosmos of concrete eternity." To achieve this, he formulated a guide to creativity and innovation in all areas of culture and life, without interruption, everywhere and at all times, which he detailed in his book La créatique ou la novatique ('Creatics or Novatics').
Despite his significant impact, Isou's persona is complex, as he evolved from the young "hound dog", halfway between Richard Huelsenbeck and Jonny Rotten as described by Greil Marcus, to the theoretician of the Youth Uprising and Infinitesimal Art.
