General Idea | Jockey Short Shopping Bag

General Idea
Jockey Short Shopping Bag
Berlin, Germany: Texte zur Kunst. 1998
77 x 40 cm.
Altered jockey shorts
Edition 100 signed and numbered copies (+20 APs)

Conceived by the trio in 1991 during the Basel Art Fair (as is indicated by the photocopy of the original drawing, made on Basilisk Hotel letterhead), the project was eventually realized as edition #31 for Texte zur Kunst magazine, seven years later. The work was intially signed on the machine-embroidered label, though these have faded over time and more recent examples have sold with the title card signed for General Idea, by surviving member AA Bronson.
