Fluxus artist George Brecht (born New York 1926 – died Cologne 2008) is one of the originators of the ‘participatory’ art movement, in which artwork can only be experienced through the active involvement of the viewer. He is also widely considered to be an important precursor to conceptual art. In his ‘Book’ he describes the specific nature of each single page, in a gesture that renders the printed matter a tautological object. Brecht originally conceived his book in 1964, but did not publish it until 1972, the year he moved to Cologne. This reprint aims to make this thought-provoking and witty artists’ book available again in an affordable version that accurately follows the original layout.
