Manfred Mohr Work from one and zero @ Carrol / Fletcher. “All my relations to aesthetical decisions always go back to musical thinking, either active in that I played a musical instrument or theoretical in that I see my art as visual music… I was very impressed by Anton Webern’s music from the 1920s where […]
