014. Brecht, George - Robert Filliou. 

Games at the Cedilla, Or the Cedilla Takes Off.

New York: Something Else Press, 1967.

Octavo, unpaginated, numerous illustrations. White cloth with red and black printed spine. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers discolored toward spine, otherwise fine.

- First edition. One of 1945 copies. ‘This book is a selective distillate of the notebooks kept by George Brecht and Robert Filliou, the one an American artist and scientist (in whose name there are a number of industrial patents at Washington, D.C.) and the second a southern French sceptic, Robert Filliou, among whose other credits are work on the United Nations white paper on the post-Korean War economic recovery for South Korea and also other economic theses, as well as various uniquely reputed poems, plays, art exhibitions and rev­olutionary exploits. The Cedilla it­self is la Cedille qui Sourit, a shop they operate at Villefranche-sur-mer on the cote d'azure where small works of avant-garde art are sold along with postcards, jewelry (by Donna Jo Brewer/Jones) and all kinds of things which do or do not have a cedilla in their (French) name. And at the Cedilla the notebooks are kept, as the researches are devel­oped, in the manner appropriate to the investigations, with a bottle of either the cheapest pleasant wine or the pleasantest cheap wine, depend­ing upon the occasion. In this way that dread disease to all artists, humorlessitis, is prevented from ap­pearing, and the artists involved (and the others too) remain in good aesthetic health.” (from the back flap).

The Book of the Tumbler on Fire. Twenty Footnotes to Volume I.

Köln: Galerie Rudolf Zwirner Cologne, 1969.

Octavo,  8 pages, 2 plates. Wrappers with the Z of Galerie Zwirner on front wrapper.

- First edition. The booklet presents  Chapter 14 of The Book of the Tumbler on Fire 'that presents 20 works from a total of 35 footnotes from Volume 1.' Henri Martin writes in An Introduction to George Brecht's Book of the Tumbler on Fire: " Most of George Brecht's objects belong to a continuing and ever-growing collection of works he calls The Book of the Tumbler on Fire, begun in 1964, but later retroactively expanded to include works from as early as 1962. Brecht tells us, «I was thinking of doing a construction which would have consisted of a faucet attached to a white porcelin tank, perhaps like the water reservoir of a toilet. The idea was that when the tap was turned on, fire would come out of it instead of water. At the same time I was doing a series of boxes (such as those used for presenting dead butterflies) containing various small objects, which I had been calling "exhibits." It then occured to me that these boxes, being relatively flat, were like "pages," implying a "book ." This idea became uer and uer until I found myself looking for a book title. The " fire-faucet" came to mind, and through a series of associations the ultimate title became fixed."

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.’
