Joel Fisher
Mönchengladbach, Germany: Städtisches Museum, 1975
[unpaginated], 20.5 x 16 x 2 cm., boxed
Edition of 550

Issued on the occasion of an exhibition of Fisher’s work held at the Städtisches Museum from September 23 to October 26, 1975, this cardboard box contains a perfect bound artist's book by Joel Fisher and a staple-bound essay by curator Johannes Cladders. Text in English and German.

"Fisher describes the process by which he will execute a work of art consisting of an irrevocable fusion of all of his previous paper works, thereby consolidating and de-articulating the individual works. Fisher also expresses the mixed feelings that arise as he anticipates this moment of simultaneous creation and destruction. Black-and-white photographs and descriptions of each piece to be included in the dissolution follow."
