Maurizio Nannucci | Parole / Mots / Words / Wörter

Maurizio Nannucci
Parole / Mots / Words / Wörter
Florence, Italy: Recorthings & Zona Archives, 1979
7" vinyl record, 33 ⅓ RPM, 13:30
Edition of 500

As the cover graphic illustrates, Nannucci took the streets like a reporter, with a microphone and recording crew and asked passers-by (outside the International Cultural Centre in Antwerp, on the streets of Florence, etc.) to tell him the first word that came to mind. The words are then isolated out of context, and often posed as a tentative or confused question. The list of words is printed on the inner sleeve.

Later made available in a boxed work with the same name, accompanied by a folded poster, photographs, a bibliography, and other printed materials.
