Anecdoted Typography of Chance

by , ,

Arguably the most important and entertaining "artist's book" of the post-war period, "An Anecdoted Topography of Chance" here appears in its definitive edition to date. A unique collaborative work by artists associated with the Fluxus and Nouveau Realisme movements, Spoerri's "topography" maps the objects lying at random on the table in his room, adding a rigorously scientific description of each -- which in turn evoke associations, memories, anecdotes, from the author as well as from his friends. Many of the principals of Fluxus make appearances (and texts by Higgins, Jouffroy, Kaprow, Restany, and Tinguely are included). The Anecdoted Topography becomes a novel of digressions in the manner of Tristam Shandy or Robbe-Grillet; it's a game, a poem, an encyclopedia, a cabinet of wonders: and a celebration of friendship and creativity.
