The exhibition proposes a reasoning on scores and musical notation in the context of Fluxus and ZAJ. Recognized over time by the most influential artistic movements of the twentieth century, anticipators of entire successive artistic currents, they presented all their public events as concerts.
A new edition of the fully illustrated exhibition catalogue that includes texts in Italian and English by the curators and of the artist Alison Knowles, will be published by Danilo Montanari.
