Product Details


“Goodbye Gutenberg. Many alternative ways of spreading the adventure of literature are emerging. This exercise by Balestrini is absolutely central.”—La Stampa

“Finally the historical impasse between literature and new media … turns into an opportunity to create something radically new.”—Aldo Nove, Il Sole 24 Ore

“Balestrini has created with Tristano a kind of poetry of the language … promoting language to the role of protagonist, that is of hero, and where in traditional novels language voices the hero’s thoughts and actions, in this new Tristano language voices itself and celebrates its The Unseen wide number of opportunities and movements.”—Angelo Guglielmi, L’Unità

“Balestrini’s experiment focuses on attacking the twin myths of the creative genius and culture as property.”—Rhizome
