periodicals on art, film, poetry, architecture + counter culture

the line between art and design is very often a thin one. graphic design is an integral part of the history of the '-isme'- movements. many examples can be found of publications - catalogues, magazines, books - of futurists, surrealists, constructivists, dadaists that challenge the classical and historical architecture of the book.

here, we offer some postwar catalogues in the context of the history of the artists' book. it was not only content but also form, not only subject but also the object that was of interest to these post war artists. the historical form of the book has never been 'trans-formed' - 'destroyed' and 'challenged' as in the last decennies of the 20th century.

some of the, let's call them 'artists'-catalogues here presented are indeed made by 'artists' (man ray, kampmann, tuttle..), most of them not, they have been produced by - in most cases - anonymous artists or designers. but have a look at this little early 'pop art one' catalogue, it's not just an exhibition catalogue, it indeed is a real 'pop-art' object - the same for the Tancock 'Multiples' catalogue, it is a 'multiple', the 'boxes' catalogue.....

La Cedille Qui Sourit.

Eine ausstellung in drei teilen/An exhibition in Three Parts/ Une exposition en trois parties.

Mönchengladbach : Städtisches Museum, 1969.

Oversized match box ( 16,4 x 20,6 x 2.1 cm) containing a smaller matchbox with 4 metal ‘cédilles‘ (hooks) , 19 file cards printed on white and yellow colored stock; a 24 pages text, stapled and printed on green stock with Brecht’s ‘vorspiel zum cedille’; a 16 page stapled and illustrated booklet + a 8 page text stapled on green stock entitled ‘la cedilla qui sourit’. A fine copy of this carefully produced catalogue.


- First edition. One of 440 numbered copies. Introduction by Johan Cladders, who writes about the exhibition that took place from june 18 – july 27 1969: ... ‘Die Kunst des „Cedille” bedarf weitgehend der Mitschöpferschaft. Für die Zeit in Villefranche lassen sich Autor und Co-Autor jeweils kaum trennen. In den Notizbüchern wechseln die Handschriften von Brecht und Filliou, an der Verwirklichung von Werken beteiligen! sich auch noch andere Hände. Freiwillig oder unfreiwillig; denn nicht Art und Weise des Zustandekommens von Beziehungen sind entscheidend, sondern das, was Relationen auslöst. Relationen überspannen das Leben wie ein Netzwerk. Auslösbarkeiten finden sich also in unendlicher Zahl, zeitlich und räumlich unbegrenzt. Sie sind der Gegenstand des „Eternal Network”, des „Fete Permanente”, des „Ständigen Geschehens”.‘ Cladders ends his introduction: ‘Unter diesen Voraussetzungen ergeben sich (..) keine Formprobleme. Sie stellen sich von der Sache her nicht. Die „Dokumente” dieser Ausstellung, Briefe, Plakate, Notizzettel usw. sind daher so wichtig wie die „Werke” auch, die sich in vielen Fällen sogar ausdrücklich als Dokumente verstanden wissen möchten.’

030. Man Ray.

Man Ray. (Le pain peint).

Paris: Alexandre Iolas, (ca. 1974).

Small quarto size 18 page leporello (24 x 17 cm) with 10 colored silkscreen prints, 1 color plate + 2 photographic illustrations + one folded colored poster (unfolded 82 x 48 cm) attached to the inside of the rear cover. The leporello is attached to two heavy boards covered with blue felt, attached on each side with a green colored ribbon. With 'pain peint' attached on front cover. Small repair to top right corner of the front cover, but still fine copy of this fragile production.


- First edition of this catalogue, supposedly made in an edition of 300 copies. The colored silk screen prints are smaller versions of Man Ray's 'revolving doors' that were originally published as pochoirs in 1926 by the Editions Surrealists. ' 'Confusingly, a number of works by Man Ray are titled Pain peint ('painted bread'). The first, made in 1958 and consisting of a set of scales of the kind once common in grocery shops and carrying two blue loaves of bread. The loaves lie across both bas- kets, frustrating the scales' balance. A second version of the work was made in 1960 for Cordier and Ekstrom, New York, and carries three loaves in its panniers. The same title is also applied to single loaves of blue-colored bread, which were made by Man Ray in small editions either in polyurethane or plaster. When Man Ray first made 'Pain peint' in 1958 he used stale loaves of bread and simply covered them with blue paint. But according to Man Ray, 'mice ate through the paint and the stale baguette'. A series of single blue loaves was made in 1960; the material was painted polyurethane and the edition was nine. Another group was produ- ced in 1964, in painted plaster in an edition of four, and yet another in 1966, again in polyurethane and again in an edition of nine.'
