Allen Ruppersberg : One of Many -- Origins and Variants

description

Although the publisher describes the book as: "This comprehensive book on one of Fluxus's most influential and entertaining artists features Ruppersberg's "Event Objects" of the 1960s and 1970s. His lists, scripts, books, signs and posters compress big ideas into mischievously tangible objects that make the viewer a part of the piece." In fact Ruppersberg has NOTHING to do with Fluxus whatsoever. In fact if somebody claims an artist to be a Fluxus artists as a means of validating their art then the chances of the artist having any involvement in Fluxus is nearly zero. However, this book is a marvelous overview of Ruppersberg work who is conceptual, witty, and deeply engaged in film and literature. Published in conjunction with traveling retrospective at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, December 11, 2005 - February 19, 2006; Dundee Contemporary Arts, April 8 - May 28, 2006; and Centro Andalz de Arte Contemporáneo, Sevilla, June 22 - September [], 2006. Introduction by Ulrike Groos, Katrina M. Brown, and José Lebrero Stals. Texts by Ann Goldstein, Judith E. Vida-Spence, Wolfgang Zumdick. Works and notes by Ruppersberg. Heavily illustrated. Biography and bibliography, list of works.
