SMITH, Jack; KREBBER, Michael (ed.)
Jack Smith, Cologne Art Fair, 1977
“For all the fans, this is a must have. Michael Krebber found all Smith’s correspondence with Elisabeth Happe, who had invited him to take part in the side program of Art Cologne in 1977. Not easy task indeed. The reading of the reprinted documents and letters is somewhat hilarious, and you find yourself intensely sympathizing with the heroic hosts, for having to deal with the challenging organization of a surreal action that, retrospectively, seems was already running at full speed. And it is, yet another time, when unfolding the broadsheet poster.”—Stefano Cernuschi (Mousse Magazine)
