West Berlin: Museum für (Sub-) Kultur, 1981. First edition. 4to, , 83 pp. + index. Xeroxed on various colors of paper stock. Clipbound into orange card wraps. Illustrated with b/w photographs and reproductions. One of 150 copies printed. Texts in German and English.
Artists' publication documenting exhibitions at the Museum für (Sub-) Kultur from 1980-1981. The Museum was an artist-run alternate arts venue created and operated by Detlef Carl, Gerti Fietzek, and Andreas Stucken, and financed by "surplus gained through the jobs of" the three. It was connected to a library and collection of works from the 1960's and 1970's at Stucken's private flat. The group was associated with COLAB and Fashion Moda as part of Collectiva International, a group of alternate art groups in the early 1980's. This connection with the New York downtown scene is exemplified here by the inclusion of work by Jenny Holzer & Peter Nadin (including photographs of altered graffiti and photographs of posters in situ from their early 1981 exhibition at the gallery), Reese Williams, Sean Scully, Catherine Porter-Scully, and Judy Rifka. Other artists included are Onze Rue Clavel, Goran Djordjevi , Zvi Goldstein, Gerard Hemsworth, Jochen Krüger, and Dominique Pasqualini.
