Series Description

Radio series. Series release date: 1987

Program Description

Program features an exhibition of works from the Museum Of Fine Arts, Boston, which challenge traditional concepts of museums and of art itself. Instead of objects, it offers systems and events which use the elements, earth, air, fire and water, as media. Some works last only a few hours. Everything is in motion or process. Continues artistic themes first presented by Japanese artists in 1954 and later by Otto Piene and the German artistic group “Group Zero”.
