New great interview with Adi Newton (T.A.G.C./Clock DVA), edited by Marco Paolucci: CLICK HERE :: KATHODIK WEBZINE
Kathodik / Marco Paolucci wrote :: After immersing myself in Adi Newton/T.A.G.C.‘s latest work ‘Meontological Research Recording III’, which I’m writing about for Kathodik HERE, I thought I would explore the philosophy and poetics behind this work and Adi Newton‘s thought. What better way to do so than in my usual digital chat? Assisted by the founders of the publishing house Rizosfera, Paolo Davoli and Letizia Rustichelli, who translated both my questions for Adi Newton into English and his answers into Italian, I was able to engage in an interesting and in-depth conversation with the author. I invite you to read it.
