Alighiero Boetti Retrospective at Museum of Modern Art
Most pleasant surprises:
'For me the work of the embroidered Mappa is the ultimate in beauty. For that work I did nothing, chose nothing, in the sense that: the world is made as it is, not as I designed it, the flags are those that exist, and I did not design them; in short, I did absolutely nothing; when the basic idea, the concept, emerges everything else requires no choosing' (A. Boetti quoted in Alberto Boatto, Alighiero & Boetti, Ravenna 1984, p. 122).
