This is the first complete monograph on the life and work of one of Italy`s most important contemporary artists and critics, Franco Vaccari. Exhibitions in real time covers his artistic production, from photography to video to his critical writing and is accompanied by a text written by a series of leading curators and critics. The book, which has been published  to accompany a major exhibition at Spazio Oberdan in Milan, documents Vaccari’s artistic evolution, from his beginning as a visual poet to the conceptual path undertaken since the late ’60s and realised in a series of experimentations based on the use of different media, photography and video. This volume encompasses the whole documentation on Vaccari’s Exhibitions in real time: 35 performances produced over 30 years.
Franco Vaccari was born in Modena in 1936 and is one of Italy’s major living artists. His experimental research carried out over 30 years – in photography, cinema and video – has been accompanied by an intense theoretical activity, and he has published among others Duchamp e l’occultamento del lavoro (1978) and Fotografia e inconscio tecnologico (1979), which is still a seminal contribution to the debate on photography. His work has been exhibited in several international museums and he took part in the Venice Bienniale  in 1972, 1980, 1993 and 1995.
