Panamarenko | Das Flugzeug

Now in his 72nd year, the Belgian artist Panamarenko has been creating works about flight for the last five decades. Many of them, it would seem, are made in editions, as there are no less than four different catalogues on his multiples (see below).

Das Flugzeug, published in 1969 in an edition of 330 numbered copies, is a boxed work (21 x 17 x 3 cm) illustrated with a photograph of the artist standing next to a Dakota. Inside is a string whose length corresponds with the diameter of the propeller of Das Flugzeug, a helicopter with two propellers, each composed of three blades.
