Compare and Contrast…


Today’s homework is to compare and contrast this RATP Paris Metro announcement and Magritte’s famous painting, Ceci n’est pas une pipe. The text of the Metro announcement reads, in English: « The information on this screen is temporarily unavailable. Our agents are working to restore it as soon as possible. »

  1. Is there a prize for this ??
    Very Dada darling !
    Well it could have been graffitied with « Ceci n’est pas une announce »…but it certainly is an announcement just as Magritte’s pipe is a pipe ! Don’t know how to compare and contrast…its a very long time since I was at school ….but to me they are both the same !!! (How northern and down to earth I am…)

  2. One is a representation of something that is not there, and one is a representation for something that should but is not there
