This publication examines twelve fundamental strategies of art and music since 1900: store, collage, be silent, destroy, calculate, roll the dice, feel, think, believe, furnish, repeat and play. Interdisciplinary essays by art and music theorists as well as exemplary works and original sources by artist, musicians, and composers are featured alongside visual documentation, showing the diversity of parrallel and overlapping activities between music and art, from Laurie Anderson and Robert Filliou to Anri sala, Iannis Xenakis, and Frank Zappa.  From the jacket blurb.

The exhibition was staged to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the pioneering composer John Cage.
