JOHN BOCK





Lütte mit Rucola, 2011
32,7 x 26,5 x 5 cm
book with loose hand knitted object; heart with veins!
signed, dated
Buchhandlung Walter Koenig, Cologne, Germany, artists' book, HC - integral binding, unpaginated children's book cardboard pages, perfect copy with original drawing, 66 pp., signed and dated.
* This object in an object book is based on a film by John Bock. It is the story about an insane man who tries to find existential guidance through the humilation of another man - obviously having a financial debt - by pulling a tooth. By means of crazy diagrams attached to the human body and using the little girl Lütte as medium he believes to be able to find the right corrections and justifications. The book is designed in the style of a childrens' book with thick cardboard pages and contains a hand made knitted heart. Drawing by artist on inner part of cover.

FISCHLI AND WEISS



Peter Fischli David Weiss, 1999
27,5 x 21,2 cm, loose pages with original white banner and grey cardboard in center to support the heavy weight paper.
* Extremely ingenius artist book which opens as a pile of loose unbound reproductions of double photo shots of colourful flowers for many years collected by the artists. Amazingly simple artist book for breaking the rules of binding a book by keeping the pages together with a wrapper. Unhandy indeed for slippery fingers! Sealed as issued, pristine copy.

Very fine copy, apart from small rubbing at lower part of spine. Extremely rare.

GERHARD RICHTER




War cut, 2004, 25 x 21 cm, hard cover, numbered, edition 2400; nrs 1-200 are signed. Pristine copy.
* In May 2002, Gerhard Richter photographed 216 details of his "Abstraktes Bild Nr 648-2", 1987. Working over a period of several weeks, Richter combined these 10 x 15 cm details with 165 texts on the Iraq war, published in the German FAZ newspaper on March 20 and 21. War Cut follows an ever denser rhythm in which texts and gaps take up the same amount of space as the pictures, creating a strictly composed work of open and closed layouts and their mirror images. A conceptual and impressive artist's book about the war in Iraq and war in general communicated through newspapers.

Two Performances, n.d. [1979]
15,7 x 24,1 cm
