        Paradise Now (Program and photographs from the 1968 play)

      N.p.: N.p., 1968. Collection of three and one double weight vintage photographs and an original program from the 1968 premiere of The Living Theatre's experimental theatre piece "Paradise Now," performed on July 24 at a Caramelite cloister as part of the 22nd Avignon Festival in Avignon, France. Three of the photographs with stamps of the Gamma photo agency or photographers on the verso, two with holograph notations regarding the production on the verso. The program, published by Walter Swennen, contains the text of "Let Us Talk about Counterrevolution" from the play in both French and English. After a dispute with the IRS led to the closing of their New York City theater in 1963, Julian Beck and Judith Malina moved The Living Theatre to Europe, where they toured almost exclusively, refining the group's vision of improvisational, collaborative, and participatory leftist theatre. In 1968 they debuted what would become their signature piece, "Paradise Now," at the Avignon Festival, where at the conclusion of the piece both performers and audience members took to the streets in a combination demonstration and parade that caused controversy among the residents of the town. Program: 4.25 x 10.5 inches (11 x 27 cm), 30 pages, saddles stitched in wrappers. Near Fine. Photographs: Variously sized between 7.75 x 5.75 inches (20 x 15 cm) and 12 x 7.75 inches (30 x 20 cm).

        Christo Wraps the Museum: Scale Models, Photomontages, and Drawings for a Non-Event; June 5-25 (Original poster for an unrealized exhibition at MoMA, signed by the artist)

      New York: Museum of Modern Art, 1968. Vintage poster for an exhibition of work associated with an unrealized Christo project, intended to wrap the New York Museum of Modern Art. INSCRIBED by the artist on the poster in orange crayon: "For Betsy Jones / Christo 1968." In early 1968 Christo and Jeanne-Claude proposed to wrap the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the adjoining sculpture garden, to be accompanied by various works inside and outside the museum created by the artists as well. Though it would have been the first of the couple's wrapped public buildings, MoMa's insurance company warned that coverage would cease immediately were the artists to begin wrapping the building, and thus the project was shelved. MoMA countered by offering the artists this exhibition: a showcase of the preparatory scale models, photomontages, and drawings created for the project. Though Christo and Jeanne-Claude worked collaboratively from 1958 onwards, only Christo was given artist credit until 1994, at which point he retroactively attributed the works to her as well. 22.5 x 32.5 inches, folded, on brown butcher paper as issued. Very Good plus, with a couple of tiny chips to the top edge, two tape repairs to the verso, and a single pinhole tear.

        House at Silverton, Signed & Titled Limited Edition Print by Lloyd Foltz

      Foltz, Lloyd, Wichita, KS 1968 - This is an original pencil signed blockprint selected by the Friends of Art at KSU to be their annual gift print in 1968 (a tradition continued by Friends of Art following the demise of the Prairie Print Makers organization in 1965). It is an unframed, woodcut on paper by Prairie Print Maker Lloyd Foltz with a 7-1/2" x 10" image on a 10-1/4" x 14" sheet, Signed in pencil LR, Titled in pencil LL, with artist's chop in Block. Lloyd C Foltz (1897-1990) is an American artist whose work focused on topics popularized by Regionalists and American scene imagists, incl small town views, Western mountain and prairie landscapes, vernacular architecture, locomotives and railroad yards. The artist made sketches on site as a starting point then finished his works based on the ideal that art, in its final form, should incorporate elements of memory and imagination. He created more than 100 lithographs, graphite sketches, ink drawings, aquatints, etchings, watercolors and block prints. Critics say Foltz came closest to matching the technical versatility of his mentor and lithographic master of the period, C. A. Seward. The popularity of Foltz, and fellow Prairie Print Makers, paralleled the growth of America's Arts & Crafts movement where attributes of hand-craftsmanship and fine yet simple detail were highly regarded.

        Aneignung und Politik. Gesammelte Reden und Aufsätze zur Geschichte der Philosophie. Herausgegeben von Hans Sauer.

      München, R.Piper & Co. Verlag, 1968. 1. Auflage 517 (3) Seiten Gr.-8°, gebundene Ausgabe, Ledereinband mit Folienumschlag, Schnitt minimal angestaubt, auf dem Vorsatz mit Widmung des Verfassers für seinen Verleger Klaus Piper, signiert in Basel am 15.3.(19)68, \"Für Klaus Piper, der dies Buch wie meine anderen so vorzüglich betreut hat, ein Zeichen meines Dankes\", mit Nachwort des Herausgebers. Karl Theodor Jaspers (* 23. Februar 1883 in Oldenburg; + 26. Februar 1969 in Basel) war ein deutscher Psychiater, der als Philosoph weit über Deutschland hinaus bekannt wurde. Er wurde 1967 Schweizer Staatsbürger. Jaspers gilt als herausragender Vertreter der Existenzphilosophie, die er vom Existentialismus Jean-Paul Sartres strikt unterschied. Er war zunächst Lehrer und anschließend lebenslanger Freund von Hannah Arendt, mit der ihn auch ein jahrzehntelanger Briefwechsel verband. Ursprünglich Mediziner hat Jaspers grundlegend zur wissenschaftlichen Entwicklung der Psychiatrie beigetragen. Sein philosophisches Werk wirkt insbesondere in den Bereichen der Religionsphilosophie, Geschichtsphilosophie und der Interkulturellen Philosophie. Mit seinen einführenden Schriften zur Philosophie hat er hohe Auflagen erreicht und ist so auch einem breiteren Publikum bekannt geworden. (Wikipedia) Versand D: 5,00 EUR

      Small collection of documents related to the squatters movement in New York and Boston in the 1960s, including a 36 pp. booklet "Use or Abuse: How to Turn Vacant Storefronts, Buildings, and Lots into Community Assets", prepared by students in the East Harlem Studio of the Division of Urban Planning at the School of Architecture, Columbia University, with a map and listing of vacant properties in East Harlem as of April 1968; a 4-pp. newspaper with the headline "No Rent Increases, No Evictions: Build Low-Rent Housing - Tax the Exploiters" and a pamphlet for an anti-war rally, both printed by the Cambridge Tenants' Organizing Committee; a double-sided pamphlet titled "The Squatters' Movement Must Grow", distributed by the Boston Area Congress for Tenants Rights; and two copies of a pamphlet for a rally at Blackstone Park in Boston's South End. Scattered illustrations from photographs and drawings. Various sizes, mostly 4to. Booklet printed wrpps., rest of documents loose. Boston, Cambridge and New York, n.d. (circa 1968-1970). The late 1960s and early 1970s were a time of much political upheaval, highlighted by the Vietnam War and the rise of student movements around the world. The squatters movement was related to these changes in the political landscape. In Boston, after a successful battle for rent control, the Cambridge Tenants Organizing Committee was founded in April 1970 by former members of the Cambridge Peace and Freedom Party to campaign for decent and affordable housing, and to help tenants document problems with landlords and fight evictions. Their membership was comprised mostly of welfare recipients, workers, and "victims of oppression"

        Computer Art and Human Response

      Charlottesville, Virginia: Paul B. Victorius, 1968. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Oblong octavo, very good in publisher's black cloth, original dust-wrapper (frayed along edges but perfectly sound), preserved in mylar sleeve. 96 pp, illustrations of computer generated art throughout, some in colour. First edition, one of 250 signed copies (this one being No. 73), now very rare in private ownership. This collection of Sumner's computer artwork and lyrical descriptive prose is the first book on computer art, according to Jeremy Norman at historyofinformation.com who states that the book "appears to be the first monograph by a computer artist, and because it explains techniques, it is probably the first book on how to produce computer art" and notes that William Fetter's 1965 book on 'Computer Graphics in Communication' was focused on computer graphics used in engineering). As we learn from COMAPART (Center of Excellence Digital Art): "Lloyd Sumner (1943-1996) was an early computer artist in the USA, the first, perhaps, to try and make a living from the graphic works he made the computer to realise. He was represented at the Cybernetic Serendipity show (London 1968) as well as the Tendencies 5 (Zagreb 1969). His booklet 'Computer Art and Human Response' appeared as a private publication in 1968. It was another step in his decision to commercialise his art. In that book, he calls computers he was working with [the Burroughs B5500 and the Calcomp 565] 'his friends.' His works are characterized by smooth curves, moiré patterns, symmetry and evenly spaced lines. Randomness does not play an important role, most works are carefully calculated, nothing is left to chance. Comparing his oeuvre of geometric and, at times, figurative line-based shapes with other productions of the time, it stands out for a simple, searching, at times almost childishly naive style. He had access to computer hardware while working at the Computer Science Center at the University of Virginia. There he found a plotting machine of which no one seemed to know how to use. So he acquainted himself with it, and was soon producing computer art. Sumner said about computer art in general: "The computer artist is a reactor, not an innovator. He is an artist with a tool not a programmer with luck." Ours is the only copy of the first edition on the market, signed or unsigned.

        Typed Letter Signed on personalized stationery with holograph corrections in pencil and text encircled and signed in pencil, 4to on personalized stationery, Rapallo, July 23, n.y. [ca 1932-33]

      Pound begins this brief letter with a reference about his opera and makes a significant comment on two notorious trials, the Scottsboro Boys trial and on the Mooney case. The newspaper he references is "The Chicago Tribune." Pound writes, "Private" at the top of the page and continues. "Thanks for boost of the Villon. I enc/ a few words re/ this a/m editorial. The Mooney case is different...Mooney probably very tiresome character but still.....not a case primarily against capital. About the black boys // are"unt [holograph apostrophe] it knowd that the two ladies were [holograph cross out] boxcar whores who declined to accuse the black boys until they had been talked to by the POlice [sic] ??? I don't [holograph apostrophe] think I have got any prejudice either way; but have an interest in facts...." Signed in large initials, "EP." The letter shows a rust stain from a paper clip, center fold crease and mild soiling from normal aging. It is possible that Pound writes to Wambly Bald. Bald was the literary columnist of the Paris edition during this time. In Pound/Joyce: The Letters of Ezra Pound to James Joyce, by Ezra Pound [1968], mention is given to the paper being "one of Pound's forums for letters to the editor." This suggests that perhaps the editor to whom Pound writes is Wambly Bald. In addition, Bald had promoted Pound's opera, Le Testament de Villon, in an earlier issue of the paper, as he thanks his correspondent here for the "boost of the Villon." Pound wrote his first opera, Le Testament de Villon, in 1919, but it was not performed until 1931 when it was transmitted as a radio opera. The first complete premier was on BBC Radio in 1933. According to slippeddisccom, the opera was written as a "revolt against musical impressionism." Based on this information, the reference to the opera suggests Pound wrote the letter circa 1932-33. Pound refers to the trial of Thomas Mooney (1882 -1942), an American political activist and labor leader, who was convicted with Warren K. Billings for the San Francisco Preparedness Day Bombing of 1916. It was widely believed that he was wrongly convicted of a crime he did not commit and condemned to death. In 1918 Pres. Wilson commuted his death sentence to life in prison. Mooney served 22 years in before finally being pardoned in 1939. Pound's remarks about the Scottsboro Boys and his interest in the truth makes this brief letter particularly interesting. Protests and fundraising efforts on behalf of the Scottsboro Boys took place in the early 1930s. Writers and intellectuals signed an appeal in the spring of 1933 and included signatures of Ezra and Dorothy Pound with a note by Ezra Pound, "I not only protest, but if this sort of judicial sanction of murder and frame-up continues I shd. Be disposed to advocate direct action. We have had enough criminals in high office already. A state even a state sanely founded can not indefinitely continue if it condones and sanctions legal murder of innocent men." [The Scottsboro Boys in Their Own Words: Selected Letters 1931-1950," edited by Kwando M. Kinshasa.]. Pound contributed many letters and articles to the Paris edition (formally, the European Edition) of "The Chicago Tribune." The paper was one the American expatriates read. It ran from 1917 when it began, started by the editor and publisher Col. Robert R. McCormick, as an Army Edition and after the war continued until 1934. McCormick decided to continue it after the war because it was fostering new art and literary movements and the numbers of Americans in Paris began to increase. In the '20s there were three American papers, but according to the National Journal of Literature and Discussion (vqronline.org), The Tribune's" Paris edition was "the liveliest of the three.".
