Accompanying publication to the exhibition And away with the minutes. Dieter Roth and music (06.09.2014–11.01.2015 at Kunsthaus Zug (CH), and 14.03.–16.08.2015 at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart Berlin). In an interdisciplinary dialogue curators, music historians and composers discuss the music-related works and collaborative projects of Dieter Roth, placing them in the context of his whole oeuvre. Fluxus specialists Gabriele Knapstein and Sven Beckstette identify connections to Concrete Poetry, to the Vienna Group, to Fluxus and to artists’ music. The exhibition book includes a DVD with the first-ever publication of an excerpt from the video recording of the Abschöpfsymphonie of 1979.

In collaboration with Camillo Paravicini.
