Descriptions
Description
This represents a second, and less common, version of M23685. The crumpled sheet, edited by Shigeko Kubota and designed and produced by George Maciunas, is printed on both sides and documents a series of events by the Japanese Fluxus collective in Tokyo in 1963. The idea to distribute the poster crumpled in a ball may have come from Marcel Duchamp's poster-catalogue for the 1953 exhibition "DADA 1916-1923" at the Sidney Janis Gallery in NYC, which were crumpled into balls and placed in wastebaskets for visitors to retrieve.
