Soleil Politique

Soleil politique is a book conceived by curator Pierre-Bal Blanc, in dialogue with graphic designers Vier5 and Paraguay; it dwells on the exhibition that he organized at Museion Bolzano in 2014. In Soleil politique, Pierre Bal-Blanc, the former director of CAC Bretigny and now a member of the curatorial team of documenta14, examines the exhibition’s starting points in the readings of a group of thinkers and artists, its methodology—inspired by the musical compositions of Cornelius Cardew—and some of the consequences and afterthoughts the exhibition provoked.
