Alighiero E Boetti: Shaman-Showman
Essay by Annemarie Sauzeau Boetti.
This memoir is both a private testimony and a critical study, written by the woman who was Boetti's companion during the first 20, and most decisive, years of his career. It is also an album of photographs and drawings, many of them never before published. Witness the very individual journey of the “shaman/showman,” as Boetti referred to himself, evoked through images and words that recall the key events, times, and places of the 1960s and 70s generation of artists. Boetti's artistic output spanned 30 years, from 1964 until his death in 1994, and he was prolifically inventive. He graduated from Arte Povera to Conceptualism with an enchanting playfulness, but also with powerful philosophical and geopolitical intuitions that only now fully reveal their prophetic nature.
