Mauricio Kagel (Buenos Aires 1931 – Cologne 2008) is one of the most authoritative and eclectic figures of the music scene of the twentieth century; his tireless compositional work has gone through 60 years of contemporary music culture and has become authoritative part of the history of music.
But not only; Kagel’s interests range from theater to television, from radio to photography and cinema.
Ludwig van (1969, b/w) is one of his most provocative and irreverent cinematic productions: a visit to the study of the great composer that is also a kind of meditation on deafness and sound, with a cast that sees the participation of artists of the likes of Joseph Beuys, Dieter Roth, Rober Filliou.
