A Brief History Of #1968

 

Part of my longtime project A Brief History Of which wants to explore the 20th century culture. As an open curatorial project it grows rhizomatically in various directions. Since late 2009 I am assembling a list of influential works by composers, musicians, writers, philosophers, artists, filmmakers, choreographers and photographers. Next to popular stuff with high artistic impact you´ll find more unknown pieces of avantgarde origin, high next to so called low culture. Gradually the works should be described, interviews should be held and correlations should be researched. Although this project actually must be a work in progress it shall merge into a book and a film sometime.

This is (so far)…
