        Oversized Poster Prospectus for Pioneer

      Np: Mass and Individual Moving, 1981. 73 x 52" poster, printed in black and white. In 1981 the Belgian-based art group Mass and Individual Moving - which on this project were Raphael Opstaele, Barbara Hahn, Jean Claude Desclin, Pierre Gonay, Savino Falcone, and Xavier Looze - debuted their newest project at the ICC Antwerp - a large, wooden, solar-powered printing press named Pioneer. Ten poets were invited to contribute poetic slogans, which were printed in high letters on large broadsides. The first slogan printed off of the press was the latin phrase "Nulla est verae creationi Patria", which ORAS translates as "genuine creation is stateless." My Latin is rusty and was never that good to begin with, but I believe that the phrase could also have an additional connotation suggesting that the political homeland cannot be created, or is impossible. The broadside bearing this statement was exhibited at later actions by Pioneer, and it draws attention to the truly radical nature of the project. While the history of portable printing presses is a long and complex one, such as the use of printing presses on trains following the October Revolution, or the portable printing presses used by armies in the US Civil war, this technological advance usually was used for ideological or state-based means and connected the infrastructure of the state or army. (An exception is the artistic uses which the mimeograph machine was put to in the Mimeograph Revolution, when it was used to create work to respond to the rapid political changes of the 1960's, such as the Motherfuckers printing broadside retorts to Bill Graham in New York at the very town hall meeting at which he was speaking). The solar power source of Pioneer is so radical in an ecological sense because it doesn't rely on political infrastructures, making it a stateless work, an aspect reinforced by the peripatetic nature of the project in later years, as it traveled to France, Germany, and finally to Mechra-Ben-Abou, where it was used to print broadsides at the edge of the Sahara. The impact of the work is reinforced by its size. Instead of subscribing to the trend of miniaturization that is so inextricably linked with portability in our technological age, Pioneer makes a different sort of impact due to the large size and weight (350 kg) of the press, and the oversized banners which it printed - an aspect of the work reinforced by the size of this poster documentation of the work. Pioneer is still intact, and now rests at the Verbeke Foundation. Mass and Individual Moving, and its antecedent group, Mass Moving, were one of the most radical art groups of the postwar period, but they are almost completely unknown in the US, and their works seem to be very poorly represented in US museums and libraries. Part of this may be due to the scarcity of printed works which are exant - Mass Moving is famous for having burnt much of their output upon the dissolution of the group.

      New York: Bantam Books, 1981. Uncorrected page proofs. 8vo. 204pp. Lacking one leaf (pp.101-2), possibly from the time of binding. Original green printed wrappers, green linen backstrip, publication date of January 1, 1981 changed in manuscript to February. Scarce proof of Dick's 'Valis', of which only a small number were prepared (by one account only 19 copies), none of which were sent to reviewers. The leaf adjacent to the lacking leaf is slightly extended from the block and discolored along the fore-edge. Although it is possible that these two leaves were at one point sprung, the tightness of the binding and lack of an obvious gap at the gutter suggest the binding error may have been present from the start. Laid-in is Bantam's "Brief Description" for the book, mimeographed typescript, 4to, three paragraphs.

      [London & Rome: Anthony D'Offay / Gian Enzo Sperone, 1981]. - [20]pp. plus folding panels front and rear. Large quarto (33.5 x 26.5 cm). Cloth and pictorial onlays over boards. Illustrated. Usual/inevitable modest rubbing and slight offsetting, otherwise about fine. First edition. One of an unspecified number of copies, signed by Clemente. Illustrated with 7 full-page designs in color, as well as 14 half-tone illustrations (ten colored), 8 of them mounted in passepartouts. Produced in India on very heavy handmade stock, and bound by hand. The copies distributed in the UK had a laid in sheet (not present here), with the publisher's explanation of the 'used' appearance of copies due to the nature of the materials and production. "In 1976 and 1977, Clemente spent time at Madras’s Theosophical Society, where he delved into its library of religious and spiritual texts. His interest in Hindu spiritual life and in other non- European cultures was combined with an enthusiasm for local popular culture and crafts. Clemente began collaborating with Indian sign painters, miniaturists, and papermakers, as in Francesco Clemente Pinxit, a 1980–81 series of miniatures in gouache on handmade paper, for which young miniaturists from Jaipur and Orissa painted the decorative elements" - Guggenheim Online.

"One of the most important and influential economists of the 20th century, the trail of the eternally eclectic John Hicks is found all over economic theory The quintessential 'economist's economist,' Hicks cannot be said to have founded a 'school If any, his school was 'economics Hicks' scholarly output is a perfect demonstration of how economics should be done: without partisanship for pet theories, without ideological quibbling, his own strictest critic, learning from all and everywhere, constantly searching for new ideas and staying glued to none No economist, before or since Hicks, has achieved such 'Olympian' scholarship" (Fonseca). "Hicks will probably appear in the history of economics as the greatest British theorist of the century" (Niehans, 371). Hicks was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics in 1972. The essays in these volumes were previously published in a variety of journals and books. Fine condition." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
