Notes and Editorial Reviews

Between 1980 and 1997, artists presented a panoply of exhibitions, installations, performances, and concerts, and engaged in lively debate on art theory, at Het Apollohuis in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Under the direction of founders Paul and Hélène Panhuysen, the building became an important center for an avant-garde that bridged the visual arts and music. Since 2009, the archives of Het Apollohuis have been located at ZKM in Karlsruhe, where scholars are examining, documenting, and preserving this valuable store of sound, text, and pictorial materials. This edition presents excerpts from previously unpublished concert and performance recordings of important artists who appeared during the lifespan of Het Apollohuis. The Read more first CD contains recordings of body related works including self built and invented instruments; the second CD is dedicated to - in the broadest sense of the word - sampling techniques being developed in the 1980s and 1990s.
