One of the best organised and largest ZERO archives is certainly at the recently founded Japanese Yayoi Kusama foundation in Tokyo. Thousands of original photo prints, newspapers, posters, publications were collected by the “obsessive” Kusama, from the mid fifties until today. Not only a pleasure to work with the staff, there is a big part of Europeans sixties history “hidden” in this archive, and thus a must for researchers. The 0-INSTITUTE is grateful to work together with the Kusama foundation on those years that Kusama was active in Holland, Germany and Belgium. Recent discoveries of a large number of photos and letters made us to decide to strengthen this collaboration, in collaboration with the Dutch RKD, Museum Boymans van Beuningen and the EICAS. The just opened and extremely good visited Kusama museum is a pleasure for the eye, but until now only with recent work from Yayoi Kusama! The O-INSTITUTE is looking forward to work on an exhibition with Kusamas' friends from the international ZERO network.
