In 1982 he launched the magazine Santiag in the Lorraine, France. He worked for the monthly magazine "Actuel" and took part in the lauch of "Rolling Stone" in the 80s. He worked for French newspaper "Libération" between 1982 and 1995 and has been recognized for his journalistic investigations. What was the beginning of his artistic career? One of his books - that had been edited, published and distributed - has been banned. It has been removed from book stores. So he needed an escape. No article, no book, no film could tell his personal history. He says that "art avoids unnecessary palaver. Everything is on the canvas." In the midst of this media scandal, Denis Robert's history left the political and became artistic. Its raw material: journalism, investigation, finance, politics, power, loneliness, distress, memory, giving up, our hopes, the future.
