The Bonotto Foundation, the largest Fluxus and Experimental Poetry online collection, offers a virtual tour to discover one of the world’s most important and interesting collections of Fluxus and Experimental Poetry works and documents together with an app to listen to over 5 hours of sound poetry.
Since the 1960s, the most avant-garde art movements have been committed to democratising and sharing art to make it accessible to all. Luigi Bonotto, a man of his time, has adopted these principles and digitalised his huge collection of Fluxus and Concrete, Visual, Sound and Digital Poetry to make it accessible to everyone.
Thanks to this vision today Bonotto Foundation can offer a free consultation of the entire collection (more then 16000 documents between artworks, editions, audio, video and documents) and a virtual tour of Casa Bonotto (located in an in industrial area).
You can listen to the “La Voix Libérée”, an anthology of sound poetry ranging from the end of the Second World War to contemporary trends comprising over 5 hours of listening, resulting from the exhibition La Voix Libérée – Poesie Sonore (The Liberated Voice – Sound Poetry), inaugurated on 21 March 2019 at Palais de Tokyo in Paris on occasion of World Poetry Day.
You can download all the audios featured in the exhibition as an app:
