In connection with the upcoming exhibition based on John Cage that will open in Autumn 2009, The Anarchy of Silence. John Cage and Experimental Art, the MACBA hosted a monographic course on the figure of this multifaceted artist.

The role of John Cage (1912-1992) is fundamental for understanding the evolution of music and contemporary art throughout the 20th Century. His musical output and theoretical work are marked, on one hand, by a notion of process that helps to explain his break away from the traditional parameters of music, and, on the other, by his idea of silence and his approach to art in relation to life and to the transformation of thought.

Son[i]a interviews Carmen Pardo, musicologist, editor, and translator of John Cage, who has imparted this monographic course.
