► detailed description

- Allan Kaprow and Robert Whitman, The New York Poets Theatre presents Allan Kaprow & Robert Whitman/A Service for the Dead programme, 1962. New York, Maidman Playhouse/New York Poets Theatre, 1962. 22 × 21cm, 4pp. Mimeographed programme for Kaprow’s happening and Whitman’s filmscreening organized by Diane Di Prima at the legendary Bowery avant garde theatre on March 22, 1962. The leaflet presents a listing of Whitman’s programme (assisted by Simone Morris) which consisted of screenings of several documented happenings. In addition it announces Kaprow’s programme featuring a list of participants and a brief artist statement from Kaprow on the international progress of the Happenings movement and on his own understanding of the stage: ‘My Happenings do not need the stage and tend to avoid most of the conventions belonging to that aspect of theater. Instead, they take place anywhere else where life can go on: the woods, in the kitchen, on the subway, in half-demolished buildings, and at the ocean. For me they have the character of rites.’ Kaprow’s contribution was mentioned as an ‘Untitled Happening’. In hindsight the performance was the first part of Kaprow's ‘A Service for the Dead’ in which the audience joined musicians in a spooky funeral procession throughout the entire theatre building, ending in the boiler room. Here a funeral service played-out for a naked woman who lay on a horizontal ladder suspended from the ceiling. Scarce item, with no OCLC records discovered. Small chip to the upper corner of the front panel. The rear page contains an unidentified address handwritten in blue pen. -Kaprow, Allan: How to Make a Happening.

► detailed description

This journal, directed and edited by José-Augusto França, aimed at offering an anthology of Portuguese avant-garde, and had close ties to Surrealism. Complete sets are quite rare. (No. 1: 64 pp, and 3 plates; No. 2: 64 pp.and 3 plates; No. 3: 64 pp. and 3 plates; No. 4: 72 pp.and 3 illustrations tipped into text; No. 5: 70 pp.) This periodical was privately printed in an unjustified edition of probably not more than 200 copies, in order to escape the attention of the censors as it included much material that would displease the Salazar regime. The aim of the editor was to unite prose, poetry and essayistic work of all avant-garde directions. The journal thus became a true anthology of Portuguese avant-gardes and its collaborators included modernists and postmodernists from the generation of Presença, as well as neo-realists, together with surrealists. Contributors included: Adolfo Casais Monteiro, António Pedro, José Augusto França, Fernando Azevedo, Jorge de Sena (among his several pieces is one on D.H. Lawrence, with a translation of the poem "Democracy"), Eduardo Lourenço, Alexandre O'Neill, and José Blanc de Portugal. There are also contributions by Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, António Sérgio, Delfim Santos, José Régio, Vitorino Nemésio, Almada Negreiros, Hernâni Cidade, Joel Serrão, Miguel Torga, Fernando Pessoa (a previously unpublished essay in Tricórnio, "O Orpheu e a literatura portuguesa"), David Mourão–Ferreira, Eugénio de Andrade, Fernando Namora, Ferreira de Castro, João Pedro de Andrade, José Osório de Oliveira, Luiz Francisco Rebello, Mário Dionísio, Tomás Ribas, Urbano Tavares Rodrigues, Ruy Cinatti, Tomás Kim, Fernando Lemos, Oscar Lopes, Alberto de Lacerda, and others. In the fifth number França wrote a final note announcing the termination of the review, saying that it had failed due to excessive ambition and lack of contributors. Artistically this review is significant with covers by Fernando Azevedo, Fernando Lemos (in particular nos. 2 and 3, which have extremely stunning silkscreened designs, as described above), Vespeira, also vignettes, woodcuts and linocuts by Almada Negreiros, Fernando Lemos, António Pedro, Roberto de Araujo, a.o. [Provenance: The bohemian critic, polemicist, writer of fiction and publisher Luiz Pacheco, collaborated in A afixação proibida, the first Portuguese surrealist manifesto. See Ana da Silva in Machado, Dicionário de literatura portuguesa; Jorge Colaço in Biblos, III, 1338–40; and Dicionário cronologico de autores portugueses, V, 42.]

EUR 1,000.00

► detailed description

Concerned with language innovation, edited by Eugene Jolas, with Vincent Huidobro, Hans Arp, Georges Peterson (who was the director). Very rare periodical, inspired by 'Vertigralism', the movement that Jolas had developed in Transition. "Vertigralism adopted the irrational aspects of Surrealism, but did not care to accept the idea of automatic writing or the surrealist Communist political bias (...) and wished to stress language innovation, never a primary concern of Surrealism." (Hofman,Allen & Ulrich, The Little Magazine). Texts and poems in German, French and English from Jolas, Huidobro, Gabrielle Buffet, Hans Arp, Georges Peterson, Léon-Paul Fargue. (Not in Vasseur, Admussen and the Cat.Collectif de la BN).
