Graphic project: Lothar Baumgarten "The horse would know but the horse can't talk".

The special guest of the third edition of the Querini Stampalia-FURLA Award is the artist Lothar Baumgarten. This project is based on the creation of a sort of saying about the difficulty or even the impossibility to judge artists. Artists speak their own language through their works, which cannot be translated in any other language. In Italian, we could use the following saying 'a horse can trot, but it is not a polyglot'.
