Tape Cassette as Catalogue

[From audio cassette label]: Art by Tape, Not by Nam June Paik.

Single folded sheet with inkjet color illus. and printed text on both sides (277 x 102 mm. folded) laid in original plastic cassette case (a little worn) and the original audio cassette. [From the folded sheet]: San Francisco: April 1998.

A very rare Leiber catalogue (no. 32) and one of his most ingenious vehicles for offering materials. The catalogue consists of an audio cassette, its case, and a list laid-in the case. “Artists, curators, art librarians, and others associated with the art world were faxed catalog entries with instructions to call and read the entry aloud over Steven Leiber’s answering machine. These recordings were then included on the enclosed audio cassette. The title of this catalog is derived from a Nam June Paik mailing.”

It offers books, ephemera, periodicals, and artworks by or related to Beuys, Barbara Bloom, Brouwn, Jeanne Dunning, Feldmann, Filliou, Flavin, Holzer, Johns, Ray Johnson, Kounellis, Oldenburg, Pettibon, Roth, Vautier, Warhol, etc.

In near fine condition; the case is a little worn with two minuscule cracks. WorldCat records only one copy. Produced in an edition of around 100 copies.
