Catalogue Note

"I once placed the letters of my name in alphabetical order. I had been struck by the fact that society’s very foundations, its gigantic structures, would collapse, if only some minute elements, such as the alphabetical order were no longer there."
Alighiero Boetti
Exh. Cat., Turin, Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (and travelling), Alighiero Boetti 1965-1994, 1996-7, p. 201
