Press Photo of Fluxus Artist Bazon Brock - 1977, Bazon Brock, Keystone
7 Bazon Brock, Keystone Press Photo of Fluxus Artist Bazon Brock - 1977
Munich Keystone 1977 Very Good 
[Bazon Brock] Press Photo of Fluxus Artist Bazon Brock. Munich: Keystone West Germany, October 1977. Original press photo, 8 1/8 by 5 7/8-inches. Fine with printed press agency blurb on verso. Prof. Brock is a German Fluxus artist, cultural critic and lecturer. This image shows Brock in a procession with some rather befuddled-looking colleagues: “A matchless event lies ahead for the inhabitants of Berlin at the final of the Berlin Festival on October 9th, 1977. Like a procession they shall carry their dearest goods and chattels of the twenties on present-pads, in vendor’s boxes and with handcarts through the town: letters, clothing, pictures, jewelry, and little pieces of furniture of yore, which shall animate inspecting and discussing. OPS: Professor Bazon Brock (right) and co-workers of the International design Centre Berlin demonstrate their imaginations of the procession with their dearest things.” Arranged a little differently, this blurb would make a good avant-garde poem!

Pop Trickster Fool: Warhol Performs Naivete, Cresap. Kelly M.
16 Cresap. Kelly M. Pop Trickster Fool: Warhol Performs Naivete
Urbana, IL University of Chicago 2004 First printing Hardcover Very Good + 
Cresap. Kelly M. Pop Trickster Fool: Warhol Performs Naivete. Urbana. IL: University of Illinois Press, 2004, first printing. Hardcover, no jacket as issued, 16 by 23.5 cm, xi 234 pp. Unread copy with minor bumping to the upper corners and tail of spine. No writing, highlighting, names, or other markings. From the publisher: “What Andy Warhol didn't know--or pretended not to know--changed history. He habitually adopted the guise of a fool in public, which made it all the harder to grasp what he was getting at with his pop paintings and deadpan films. By making his own apparent lack of competence and intelligence into an elaborate ruse, he became a figure without precedent: a man whose self-conscious naivete has had truly revolutionary impact. With poise, wit, and exacting intelligence, Kelly M. Cresap performs a nearly impossible task: accounting for the far-ranging implications of Warhol's sustained performance as a naif. This book is as much for those who despise Warhol as those who admire him. Among the offerings here is a vigorous account of the search for Warhol's brain; a polemic on camp taste; and a unique town-hall forum representing four decades of intense debate about the artist. Readers will find an engaging blend of art and literature, popular culture and mythology, as well as timely reflections on postmodernism, queer identity politics, and the nature of jokes and performance.” We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags. Bay Leaf Books (Member ABAA, ILAB) is an open shop dedicated to offering fine books for discriminating readers. First Edition.

Geelong HUB Gallery/A Field Study Manifestation 2003 First printing Paperback Fine 
Dellafiora, David, ed. Art As Terrorism Hand Book. Geelong, Australia: HUB Gallery/A Field Study Manifestation, 2003, first printing. Plastic comb binding with card covers (plain back, spray-painted front) and a printed mylar cover, 6 by 8 1/4-inches, photocopied leaves, not paginated (66 pp.). Fine. A collection of cut-and-paste, illustrated, and otherwise photocopied artworks, including a small inclusion by Fluxus artist Ben Vautier. Dellafiora’s introduction: “Contemporary Art has a long history of artists who used elements of cultural terrorism in their work, from the anarchism of Gustave Courbet, the blood rites of the Vienna Actionists, Gustav Metzger’s Auto-Destructive Art to Gregory Green’s Book Bombs. Art As Terrorism was conceived as a workshop for the University of Ballarat to inspire art students to tap into this subversive zeitgeist and to give voice to their own iconoclastic concepts. Art As Terrorism Hand Book and the accompanying exhibition at the HUB Gallery [October 6-16, 2003] is the result of this two-day workshop with further collaboration with art workers from HUB and the mailart network. This artistbook is in the style of a bomb maker’s handbook and is to be viewed as a manual for cultural intervention.” (eph) First Edition.
