Daniel Buren: 8 pages, 3 color plates. Illustrated wrappers.  Slipcase with former owner ‘s stamp + handwriting. Inside fine.

- First edition. Plan contre-plan (Eine Arbeit in situ) by Daniel Buren in Museum Haus Esters (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe architect) +  Michael Asher’s project realized in Museum Lange (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe architect)
‘In his installation in Mies van der Rohe's Haus Lange in 1982, the artist took the existing floor plan of the house at the ground level and rotated 90 degrees. Thus the white exhibition walls protruding out of brick exterior walls of the house, exposing the idea that Mies designed the house on a grid system which is not easily apparent as the architect's later projects. Michael Asher in this project clearly employs the formal and abstract notions of making the sculpture. The existing floor plan re-introduced via the movement of the rotation, emphasizing its architectural formalism, re-contextualized. The result is purely sculptural, driven directly from Mies' floor plan of the house. Sort of reverse of what architects are usually concerned with, when the construction is the other way around. As it is generative, it is ironic and critical in the same time. ‘ (http://www.archpaper.com/news/articles.asp?id=6492#.VdCzz_nnuM8)

- First edition. The 1970 Biennale took place, in spite of the institutional crisis and identity derived from the turbulent '60s. The contestation of '68 had left some obvious signs: Grand Prizes were abolished (restored in 1986 with the Golden Lions) as well as the sales office. The 35th biennale became the first thematic exhibition. The catalogue is divided in the following sections: Arte e Societa; Produzione – texts by Luciano Caramel, Giulio Carlo Argan, Max Bense, Diane Waldmann, G. Franco Tramontin, and Gianni Bertini; Analisi di Vedere – texts by Paolo Bonaiuto; Gioco/Relax – text by Ernesto L. Francalanci, Gruppo Keks and Loredana Perissinotto; Forum. Artists represented at the 35th biennale were Zoran Radović, Reinhard Omir, Gerald Minkoff, the Computer Technique group, Michael Heizer, Victor Vasarely, Paolo Dorazio, Fabrizio Plessi, Carlo LorenzettiBruno Munari, Bruno di Bello, Ugo La Pietra, Aldo Tagliaferro, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Heinz Mack, Gerhard von Graevenitz, Julio Le Parc, Otto PieneJanos Urban, Jesus Rafael Soto, Max Bill and many others.
