Wolf Vostell | Buch mit elektronischer Tasse


Wolf Vostell
Buch mit elektronischer Tasse
Berlin, Germany: René Block, 1969
12 x 26 x 32 cm.
Wooden box with printed plexiglass cover containing an acoustic "noise sensitive" metal cup and paperback book: Sidney Simon “Vostell’s action-picture-language” (450 pages, 400 illustrations. 30 x 24 x 12 cm.)
Edition of 30 signed and numbered copies.


Book With Electronic Cup (the rough English translation of the title) is the 17th Edition published by the influential dealer, curator and publisher René Block, one of seven multiples he published by Vostell. The title is extremely rare, though apparently the collections of both Ryerson and NSCAD have copies. 

A copy in good condition is available from Raphael Levy, here, and the book alone is in stock at Specific Object, here.
