“We never advertised, and still don’t, which was part of my philosophy from the very beginning. I was on the streets of Paris in 1968 during the student protests, when they were saying advertising was like manipulation of the people, and statements like that have marked me forever. Luckily, we never needed to place adverts in magazines, because straight away, the media found something new in my work. We were supported by the press naturally and clearly – without ever having to pay for it.” –agnès b. as quoted in Inventory
