a spectacular exhibition. a live show. an expository conjunction: visuality, action, sound …
the result of a defining work of our time: artistic experimentation.
meta language of reality: a product of creative imagination. overcoming the traditional field of poetry: a path to total art.
destruction of artistic convention: all that is life can be art.
freedom as a method. the work of art as another product of man: at the service of man’s progress.
versus linear language, visual, multiple language. the progression versus immobility. humanization versus deification.
the effort of some men to make an art according to their time, an authentic product of their time.
a progressive artistic form of/for a progressive ideology.
