As of late, Lettrisme scholar, sound artist and experimental composer Frederic Acquaviva has been busy bringing Gil J. Wolman back to the forefront of (art) history. Earlier this year, we discussed “Et des Hommes…”, a comics collage  by Wolman made available to the general public for the first time courtesy of Editions Acquaviva. We now wish to mention a Wolman exhibit put together by Acquaviva at “La Plaque Tournante” (a likely reference to the psychogeographic concept of “rotating plates”) gallery in Berlin:  http://www.laplaquetournante.org/03-5.html
