Fortunato Depero, Selfportrait, Roma, November 11th 1915. Mart, Archivio del ’900, Depero Fund.
We are honored to inaugurate a new collaboration with the Archivio del '900 al MART on the occasion of Performance. Corpo privato e corpo sociale, an ongoing show curated by Nicoletta Boschiero e Duccio Dogheria at Casa d'Arte Futurista Depero in Rovereto. The show investigates the body as a tool and site of artistic research. In the next couple of month, Radio Papesse will collect and host a few sound pieces the Archivio del '900 del MART has been digitalizing and archiving in Trento.
We begin with Sarenco's sound poetry and the choise seems rather obvious: he is the founder of the Sound Poetry International Archive - collected between 1969 and 1971 - and he's one of the protagonist of the visual and sound poetry himself. In 1970 he had started the audiocassette series Poesia Sonora, released by Amodulo publisher and starting from 1982 he published more than twenty releases with the vynil series Radiotaxi. Vibrazioni dal sonoro.
