Uncommon exhibition catalogue focused on Christian Boltanski’s artist's books. This show was one of many shows put together at the Neues Musuem Weserburg Bremen by curator Guy Schraenen (1941-2018) on the topic of artists’ publications. Boltanski (1944-2021) loaned several works to the exhibition, and the catalogue has several visual reproductions of his work. The catalogue essay, written by Schraenen, is entitled “Gedächtnis des Vergessens” [“Memory of Forgetting”]. This is a most useful reference in the study of Boltanski’s numerous books. With an extensive list of the artist's books at the end.

Near fine copy. One of 1000 copies produced. Volume 15 in the Sammlung der Künstlerbücher.
