Carolina Jiménez, curator and independent researcher, and Anna Penalva, independent researcher suggest an immersive stroll along the paths explored by Takis from the mid-20th century onwards, melding artistic, literary and scientific contexts. From electromagnetism as a sculptural material to his Pythagorean tuning of the cosmos, Takis engaged in frenetic activity, delving intuitively amid the spoils of war and the technological gallimaufry around him. The tours aim to take stock of the main areas of his work: light and silence, energy and politics, vibration and sound, matter and darkness.
