The Box Catalogues of the Städtisches Museum Mönchengladbach 1967-78
Publisher: Walther Koenig
For the first time, the 35 box catalogues of Städtische Museum Mönchengladbach have been published as a book.
Museum director Johannes Cladders developed the idea of catalogues in the form of a box with Joseph Beuys in 1967.
Understated in their initial appearance, the grey boxes provide an unconventional and pertinent overview of the international vanguard art of the period, including seminal movements such as Conceptual Art, Fluxus, Arte Povera, and Pop Art.
Artists included are Jasper Johns, Marcel Broodthaers, Panamarenko, James Lee Byars, and Gerhard Richter, among many others.
