Museo Vostell Malpartida commemorates Wolf
Vostell´s 80th anniversary and the first 50 years of Fluxus by staging
multimedia opera “El Jardín de las Delicias”.
Regarded as Vostell´s key musical work, “El Jardín de las Delicias”
was commissioned to the artist in 1982 by Pro Musica Nova Festival
in Bremen, however it was never fully staged. At that point in time the
last act was staged at the Kunsthalle, and the whole fluxus opera was
presented as a radio work. We are proud to present the premiere of the
complete version of an opera divided in four acts that will follow one
another at some spaces of the Museo Vostell Malpartida.
The artist himself referred to this work in this way: Please imagine
“El Jardín de las Delicias” as an opera (…) resembling a 20 traffic
lane motorway (acoustically), where 20 optic-acoustic events are
simultaneously developed, moving smoothly as a channel of
communication and producing a polyphony comprising voices and
noises along with electronic sounds.
