EP Vol. 1The Italian Avant-Garde – 1968-1976

 - EP Vol. 1
Avant-garde in Italy between 1968 and 1976.
This first volume in the EP series is devoted to the activities of the avant-garde in Italy between 1968 and 1976. While emphasizing the multiple correspondences between collectives and groups like Arte Povera, Archizoom, Superstudio, and figures such as Ettore Sottsass and Alessandro Mendini, The Italian Avant-Garde: 1968–1976 also highlights previously overlooked spaces, works, and performances generated by Zoo, Gruppo 9999, and Cavart. Newly commissioned interviews and essays by historians and curators shed light on the era, while contemporary practitioners discuss its complex legacy.
