Celebrating John Cage’s 100th birthday in September 2012: the seminal work on the elemental interplay between art and music

Before John Cage (1912-1992), almost no one was as consistent as he was in his questioning of the boundaries of music and its connections to other fields of art and the everyday world. Along with Erik Satie, Marcel Duchamp, Nam June Paik, and Joseph Beuys, Cage is one of the greatest strategists and pioneers of twentieth-century music and art. Starting with these key figures, this publication in our series Art to Hear examines twelve fundamental strategies of art and music since 1900: recording, collage, silence, destruction, calculation, coincidence, feeling, thought, belief, furnishing, repetition, and playing. Interdisciplinary essays by art and music theorists, as well as exemplary works and original sources by artists, musicians, and composers are featured alongside visual documentation, showing the impressive diversity of parallel and overlapping activities between music and art, from Laurie Anderson and Robert Filliou to Anri Sala and Iannis Xenakis. (English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3389-2)

In conjunction with this exhibition a catalogue (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3318-2; English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3319-9) is also available.
