La catena genetica del mercato delle pulci
La catena genetica del mercato delle pulci
(Genetic chain of the flea market)

In Italy, when Daniel Spoerri started thinking about moving, this first only concerned his extensive storage space full of objects – his “private flea market”, as he called it. Here he seemed to want to clean up and bit by bit he transformed 100 meters of shelves into one enormous frieze, which the aesthetics professor Bazon Brock once called a modern pantheon frieze.
The first 60 meters of the “Genetic chain of the Flea Market” was shown at the “Palazzo delle Stelline” in Milan, a former convent with a 60-meter-long cloister.
