Publisher's description: Catalonian artist, author and curator Pedro G. Romero (b. 1964) has been compiling Archivo F.X. -- memory theater, archive and imaginary museum -- since 1999. Consisting of more than a thousand documents linking stories of Spanish anticlerical iconoclasm (1931-36) with positions adopted by the international avant-garde, Romero develops different ways of presenting the archive by continually readjusting its frame of reference to reflect factors such as the urban environment, community, knowledge and economics. Specially conceived for and now exhibited at the Wurttembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, the project sets up an unusual dialogue with the artists Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Joseph Beuys and Alexander Kluge. Previous presentations as solo and group exhibitions and projects included the Catalan Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2009), the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, the ZKM Karlsruhe and the Sao Paulo Biennale (2014). Essays by Kunstverein Stuttgart codirectors Hans D. Christ and Iris Dressler and art historian Valentin Roma.
