The main of this collection comprises vinyl records and covers by artists, musicians and poets in LP, single and other formats, alongside other sound media (tapes and CDs). Posters and books are also included. The exhibition shows artists (such as Hanne Darboven, Jean Dubuffet, Dieter Roth, Joseph Beuys, Laurie Anderson, John Cage, Yoko Ono, Yves Klein, Roman Opalka, Lawrence Weiner, Mike Kelley, Öyvind Fahlström, Art & Language and Hermann Nitsch) and artistic movements of the second half of the twentieth century through this complex medium of the vinyl cover, with its dual visual and audible components. Here Guy Schraenen has edited together an extensive visual catalogue of these historical objects.

Hans Ulrich Obrist
A Brief History of New Music

Following the success of “A Brief History of Curating” (now available in five different languages, in its fifth reprint, and as an e-book), this publication gathers together interviews with pioneering musicians of the 1950s to the 1980s. The book thus brings together avant-garde composers such as Elliott Carter, Pierre Boulez, and Karlheinz Stockhausen; originators of electro-acoustic music such as François Bayle, Pauline Oliveros, Iannis Xenakis, Robert Ashley, and Peter Zinovieff; Minimalist and Fluxus-inspired artists such as Tony Conrad, Phill Niblock, Yoko Ono, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley; as well figures such as Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Arto Lindsay, and Caetano Veloso. Their contributions map the evolution of the musical field, from early experiments in concrete and abstract music, to the electronic development and the hybridization between Pop and avant-garde culture.

Hans Ulrich Obrist (*May 1968) joined the Serpentine Gallery (London) as Co-Director of International Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects in 2006.

The book is part of the Documents series, co-published with Les presses du réel and dedicated to critical writings.

“What a generous and incredible documentation of modern composers’ minds and spirits!! It reveals their different characters, moods, methods, and more—proper fertile!!!” —Björk
