The first French translation of Neuhaus's writings.
Max Neuhaus (1939-2009) is the pioneer of artistic activities with sound. A renowned interpreter of contemporary music while still in his twenties, Neuhaus went on to become the first to extend sound as an autonomous medium into the domain of contemporary art. His works are permanently exhibited in Times Square, New York, USA (Dia: Beacon); at the Kunsthaus Graz, Austria; at Castello di Rivoli, Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Italy; CAPC Musée d'Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, France; AOK Building, Kassel, and Stommeln, Germany. Neuhaus notably exhibited at MoMA, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; ARC, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Centre National d'Art Contemporain, Grenoble; Kunsthalle Basel, and Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland; he also took part in Documenta 6 and 9, Kassel, and La Biennale di Venezia.
