COMBINATION of the Program and the Poster of this Event: - The PROGRAM: Ausgefuehrt von E. Andersen, Joseph Beuys, Bazon Brock, Stanley Brouwn, Henning Christiansen, Robert Filliou, Ludwig Gosewitz, Arthur Koepcke, Tomas Schmit, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, Emmett Williams - Organisiert von Valdis Abolins u. Tomas Schmit - herausgegeben von Tomas Schmit und Wolf Vostell. Juli 1964. Program outlined on page 2, introductory texts by Valdis Abolins. Eric Andersen: comments in English by Dick Higgins and George Brecht. 2 pages by Joseph Beuys: (Lebenslauf, Werklauf); Bazon Brock; Stanley Brouwn; Henning Christansen; Robert Filliou; Ludwig Gosewitz; "Texte postal" f. Emmett Williams; Arthur Koepcke;Tomas Schmit: with intact envelope with printed instructions for a "do it yourself" artwork (VIVOGRAPH), in English and German, probably containing a piece of of carbonpaper and a piece of white paper. (This item is often missing as to complete the work the owner was to tear it out and wear it in pocket - it is present and unopened here; BEN Vautier; Wolf Vostell; Emmett Williams; the George Brecht: "motor vehicle sundown (event)" is not published (only on the program). This publication appeared on the occassion of a "Festival of New Art" staged at Aachen Technical University on the twentieth anniversary of the attempt to assassinate Hitler on 20 July 1944. The events started after Bazon Brock's talk on texts by Marx and Hegel "Philosophy is the world turned upside down" and gave his talk while standing on his head. Actions of the artists went on simultaneously, and when Beuys melted blocks of fat on a stove (action titled "Kukei/Akopee – nein!") gesturing with a copper rod tumult started: right-wing students came on the scene and Beuys was punched hard and his nose bled. The blood from Beuys' nose led to a famous photograph of the artist with a smudge that looked very like a "Hitler" moustache - Beuys made a Hitler salute for the camera. Police then ended the performances. - The POSTER designed by (Wolf Vostell and) Nam June Paik. Reproduces several illustrations of Japanese torture scenes and some texts, as collage. Across the image lettering in b/w: - Actions Agit-Prop Dé/collage Happenings Events Anti Art lÁutrisme Art Total Refluxus- Poster by (Wolf Vostell and) Nam June Paik. "I admire monkey.

► detailed description

Famous document from the 1960s.'The Scroll of Bart Huges'. (The man who pierced his head with a dentist's drill, Huges advocates the creation of an altered state of mind concurrent with the use of LSD and marihuana.) His experiences after this psychedelic hallucinating experiment are recorded in this scroll, which is illustrated by 'scientific' images, which are handcoloured. The 'third eye' was revealed during a Happening "Stoned in the Streets' in Amsterdam, 1965. Hugo Bart Huges (also Hughes) (April 23, 1934 . September 12, 2004) was a Dutch librarian and proponent of trepanation. He attended medical school at the University of Amsterdam, but was refused a degree due to his advocacy of marijuana use. In 1964 he published "The Mechanism of Brainbloodvolume ('BBV')" (also known as "Homo Sapiens Correctus") a scroll in which he proposed that trepanation could be used to enhance brain functionality by balancing the proportion of blood and cerebral spinal fluid. Hughes believed that, when mankind began to walk upright, our brains drained of blood and that trepanation allowed the blood to better flow in and out of the brain, causing a permanent "high.". Using an electric drill, Huges drilled a hole in his skull on 6 January 1965.[ His experiences after this psychedelic hallucinating experiment are recorded in this scroll, which is illustrated by 'scientific' images, which are handcoloured. The 'third eye' was revealed during a Happening "Stoned in the Streets' in Amsterdam, 1965.

Soon after Knizak created this book the Czechoslovakian police searched his home on the grounds that the artist was creating and distributing pornographic material. Knizak was imprisoned in Prague on three charges including, no. 1: that this book 'through its form and content [Knizak's artwork] intended to discredit the image of a Czechoslovakian abroad'; 2 because his works were seen to be pornographic 'in the eyes of the law of Czechoslovakia'; and 3 because 'the work of Milan Knizak is undesirable within the framework of Czechoslovakian cultural policy'. After public pressure, Knizak was released from prison (ref: Schmuck, Czechoslovakia issue 1974, p. 1).

LOS RINOS

Art Total Grup Los Rinos (Barcelona 1985). Only published issue: 50x35 cm., unbound, unpaginated (12pp)., original rubber stamps, print, offset (the outside sheet on white artpaper with photographs).

EUR 700.00

► detailed description

Sergi Caballero, Pau Nubiola and Marcel.lÌ Antunez Rocca made up the collective Art Total Grup Los Rinos and their activities spanned many different fields. Initially the collective was mainly involved in graffiti. The group painted bullseyes in public places and the concentric black and white circles became their logo. The bullseye moved to other media, such as the bodies of animals, leading to the bullseyeing of sheep and goats. They also created a headpiece topped by a bullseye which the Rinos wore as they walked through the streets. Lastly they designed and made up their own Rino suits, using a fabric printed all over with bulleyes. All this work was recorded in a publication containing photos of the graffiti and all the actions related to the bullseyes as well as the Rinos' opinions about art. From 1987 onwards the Rinos' activities extended to other areas. In May of the same year they carried out a large-scale mural painting called Atlas, in conjunction with the collective Gegant. The mural was painted on the side of a building in Barcelona by means of hanging down from a balcony. (This action would be repeated in 1990 in Yokohama, Japan.) In spring 1987 they presented a video performance called Rinosacrifici portraying the Rino's crude and domestic vision of sacrifice. This is the only publication of this underground group containing photos of the graffiti, all the actions as well as the Rinos' opinions about art.

On the second sheet of number 6 it is specified that it is number 7-8-9 ... and so on until number 506, with a circulation of 500 copies. Given the date, these issues of the magazine were made after leaving the University of Orleans (where the previous and best-known four were made), when the author was already transferred to the University of Paris. Although they have not the wealth of sheets and authors of those previous issues, these copies show us the conceptual approach of the author's "project of publication" not without an ironic sense (as if numbering is sufficient to make the journal exist without specifying the content).

John Wilcock's Other Scenes, ostensibly a fortnightly gazette, appears 20 times a year (but appearance is not necessarily always in the same format or can be in another manifestation). " Wilcock was one of the pioneer-founders of the Underground press and closely connected to Andy Warhol. He was also the first printer of Andy Warhol's Interview. Other Scenes was his own publication. It emerged from a column by that name (which Wilcock wrote for the East Village Other) to a full-scale paper about the international underground scene. Amongst the very numerous and varied contributions (a mix of original work and contributions by the network of correspondents quoting from the international underground press) we find Ed Ruscha (logo's for nos. 4 and Newsletter 4). J.J.

DIE REIHE

Periodical Devoted to Developments in Contemporary Music. Bryn Mawr:

Theodore Presser in Association with Universal Edition, 1958-1968. 8vo, each volume an 8vo bound in printed wraps of varying colors, by the Austrian designer Willi Bahner. Spines a bit worn, with reading creases and some light chipping to paper, and creasing to the wraps, but otherwise a sturdy, very good set. Scarce complete.

EUR 2,000.00

► detailed description

The English language edition of one of the most important contemporary music periodicals , which began publication in German in 1954 out of the circle of composers which coalesced around the Nordwestdeutscher Rundfunk (NWDR). The covers are brilliantly and minimally designed by the important Austrian designer Willi Bahner. The contributors are largely European, though John Cage offers several important texts. The periodical was the most important English language source of information for European experimental and serial music, though this English language version was often contentiously received by English language readers. The periodical came to an end after a falling out between the two editors, with the epic issue no. 8. To the credit of the periodical, one of the most bitter attacks on the magazine was published in die Reihe itself, an attack on work by Stockhausen by the Dutch physicist Adriaan Fokker - a fitting coda to a provocative and contentious periodical. Each issue was devoted to articles on a particular theme. No. 1 - Electronic Music, No. 2 - Anton Webern, No. 3 - Musical Craftmanship, 4. Young Composers, 5. Reports Analyses, 6. Speech and Music, 7. Form-Space, and 8. Retrospective. More detailed contents on request.

SEKIGUN

(The Red Army)

Pamphlet No. 3 (all and only published). Special issue, manifest poster-journal. Tokyo 1972 (Bureau of Pornography of the Kansaigakuin University). 1 sheet of off-white newsprin (56x42 cm), printed recto/verso in red. Text and illustrations, text in Japanese, with occasional english words in latin letters. Issued by Nagata Hiroko and Takita Osamu.

EUR 1,400.00

► detailed description

In the 60's/70's the Kansaigakuin University was the breading ground for student activism of various directions: Zenkyôtô, Zenagakujichi, Seikyô and Sekigun (Red Army, which was the most active). At the culmination point of the struggles it seems that the Red Army students had pressed the editorial office of the University newspaper to print this parody with the logo of the Red Army replacing the official logo and to place the name of the Red Army in large print on the front page. This was similar to the logo of the journal of the Japanese communist party Akahata (The Red Standard). Special issue on Drugs, Mind Liberating Plants, Green Revolution. (On the front page in capitals: Drug Freegras). Marijuana and LSD were the keywords for mental freedom, and here a guide is offered how to cultivate and fabricate it, and they advocate free distribution all over Japan. The picture of the love-making couple placed over a large image of a marihuhana leaf on the front page went too far for the authorities, the partciipants were arrested and the journal was forbidden.

EUR 4,500.00

► detailed description

A collaboration between the Nouveau Realiste artist and writer Francois Dufrêne and Wolf Vostell - both leading exponents of decollage. Wolf Vostell, who was not a member of the Nouveau Realist Group, also developed the process, having noticed the word "Decollage" in the news- paper 'Le Figaro' on 6 September 1954, where it was used to describe the simultaneous take-off and crash of an aeroplane. He appropriated the term to signify an aesthetic philosophy, applied also to the creation of live performances, by which the destructive, violent and erotic events of contemporary life were assembled and juxtaposed. [Ref.: Vomm - Wolf Vostell. Die Druckgrafik - pp.20-21]. 23 fullpage silkscreens of Vostell's Decollages in the Streets of Paris etc. in 1956 – 1961, "Oreille pour un Tombeau" (Ohr fuer ein Grab), printed in black, integrated with several pages with concrete poetry by Dufrêne, "TPL. Tombeau de Pierre Larousse", also of Vostell's design. Introduction by Alain Jouffroy. Texts in German + French. Though not stated, the edition was limited to 300 copies. Back fly page with a printed sheet mounted onto (at a later date) which shows an offset-photograph of Vostell painting some loafs of bread w. gold color. The image has been altered by Vostell with a drawing and is dedicated to the artist Franz Mon, handsigned "Wolf V.".

Vostell's "Exhibition" did NOT take place in the space of Galleria Schwarz, Milano (Italy), as a regular exhibition, but this "Exhibition" was displayed on sites spread over Cologne (Germany). The Gallery published a "guide" for this event and mailed the booklet out as an invitation for a sightseeing of sites in Cologne. Very much in the tradition of the situationistic "Dérive" (= drifting in urban environments) and "détournement" (="mis"-appropriation of pre-existing aesthetic elements). In photographic examples for forms of a "Décollage" Vostell also cites a photo of the war-destroyed city of Cologne in 1945. [ Reference Happening + Fluxus, Koeln, 1970 - # 62; Vostell.
