A famous Steven Leiber (1957-2012) catalogue, his 16th, describing more than 700 items; printed in an edition of about 100 copies. This catalogue is modeled after Harald Szeemann’s catalogue for the celebrated Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form exhibition presented at the Kunstalle Bern in 1969. “Rose Holtz,” mentioned on the cover, is Leiber’s grandmother, whose basement hosted his premises. Many items are illustrated on versos. Leiber’s catalogues are an essential resource for the study of Fluxus, Conceptual art, artists’ books, and art ephemera.
A near fine copy; some minor wear to the edges and a tiny coffee stain to the upper cover.
