Erscheinen - Verschwinden. On KAWARA.

Erscheinen - Verschwinden.

Several color illus. 63 pp. Small 4to (223 x 169 mm.), pictorial boards, title on spine, pictorial endpapers. Cologne: Kölnischer Kunstverein & Japanisches Kulturinstitut, 1997.

Scarce catalogue for an exhibition jointly organized by the Kölnischer Kunstverein Japanisches Kulturinstitut in Cologne (26 August-8 October 1995). It was published two years after the exhibition took place.

The catalogue contains installation views, a diagram of the exhibition space, and lists of the rotating display of On Kawara’s Date Paintings. Each week the paintings were rotated with new ones. On the facing wall copies of the newspapers which the artist used to construct the boxes for these paintings were available for reading. A text by Takashi Hiraide is printed in German and Japanese.

In fine condition. We locate only three copies in North American institutions.
