Group Zero


There are many aspects, under which ZERO might be looked upon. “Visual Research?” No (because pure visual research continues the academic tradition). “Vibration?” No (because we merely use it as a means, not as an aim). “Universalism?” No (as every art has a trend towards universalism). “Purism?” No (as purism is utopic).
