Re: [Yasmin_discussions] Oral Traditions and the Digital Arts

This exhibition (which started in Berlin) produced an extensive
hardbound catalog with numerous photographs. CVM has an extra catalog
from this exhibition, new, if anyone in the US is interested to
purchase it. The shipping would be much cheaper than ordering from
Germany, it's a heavy catalog. Essays are in German only.

We were a lender to the exhibition, for the Oskar Fischinger film.
