Silence is part of a series of banners that Nicola L. took out onto the streets. They were first exhibited at the Je/Nous.We/Me exhibition from 23 May to 13 July 1975 at the Museum van Elsene in Brussels, which collected works depicting the tense relationship between the individual and society. The exhibition was intended to save the left-wing magazine Pour by Isi Fiszman and Jean-Claude Garot from bankruptcy. Nicola L. placed four banners in the basement on two poles, as if for a demonstration, with the following text: we want to see, we want to hear, we want to feel, we want to touch.

This banner was later also shown at her retrospective exhibition at the ICC (1976) and during a group exhibition at the MUHKA (Woord en Beeld in de Belgische Kunst, 27 June - 15 November 1992). This work comes from the collection of Flor Bex and Lieve De Deyne.
