Human Incubation. Mass Moving.

Human Incubation

Brussels: Mass Moving, 1972. 25 x 33 1/4" poster, photographically illustrated on coated stock, with titles and text silkscreened onto the coated paper in two colors.

An oversized, and beautifully printed poster published as an announcement for an action on the 15th of December, 1972, at the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels. The action was a natural progression on their large scale butterfly project in Venice earlier in 1972, but this time featured cocooned humans - a provocative action suggestive not only of immobility, but potentiality.

Documentation issued by the group is exceedingly scarce, as the group famously burnt much of their output upon their dissolution.

Some very light handling creases, but a bright, remarkably well-preserved example. Item #24700
