“By way of a selection of hundreds of sound works, Audiosphere. Sound Experimentation 1980-2020 looks to cover an historical and cultural void in terms of the recognition, exhibition and analysis of a key part of the recent changes that have taken place in the artistic conception of sound creation.
In the following catalogue, the curatorial discourse that articulates the exhibition is displayed along with some texts that affect the relevance of sound art in contemporary art and, with it, in the social field.”
