Alzheimer Café (2014- ) is a series of performances, sound installations and public interventions dedicated to ‘musical memories’, those that incredibly resist to the neurological degeneration caused by the disease, and that have been inspiring the entire cycle. All the works from the series Alzheimer Café include musical fragments sung or hummed by people affected by neurological disorders of memory.  Despite that the works deliberately avoids the documentary format.

Alzheimer Café I (2014) was produced by Kunsthalle Goeppingen (Germany) in the context of the program “Kunst im öffentlichen Raum“.

A sculpture, a sound installation in the city of Goeppingen (Germany). A monument to musical memories.

Alzheimer Café I is a red pyramid. Inside on the floor two holes: two musical boxes playing sound memories if opened. One is the basso continuo, and the other is the melody.
