The volume L’archivio corale: lo Spazio di Via Lazzaro Palazzi, l’esperienza dell’autogestione e AVANBLOB (A Choral Archive: The Via Lazzaro Palazzi Space, the Experience of Self-Management and AVANBLOB) takes form around a nucleus of previously unpublished materials that document the activity of the Space on Via Lazzaro Palazzi in Milan, from 1989 to 1992, in a systematic way for the first time. Alongside the wide-ranging visual essay prepared by the artists involved in the experience, specifically for this publication—which brings together archival materials and a timeline that retraces, in images, the exhibitions hosted at the Space and other important shows outside it, along with the original and scanned issues of the magazine tiracorrendo, writings by the artists, photographs and object-memories—the introductory text by Cristina Baldacci, entitled “Fluctuating images. From the heterotopic Space to living archive: Via Lazzaro Palazzi 1989-2015,” narrates the birth and evolution of the archive, while the essay by Paola Nicolin (“AVANBLOB. Self-portrait of an exhibition”) is a lively narration of the construction of the historic exhibition-environment “AVANBLOB” through the direct testimony of its protagonists. The volume concludes with the wide-ranging contribution of Andrea Viliani (“Towards a choral archive of the Italian art of Autonomy”), on the various expressions of Autonomy in Italian art from the 1960s to the present.
