Idea Code 15627 $36.50
Compiled by Fluxus artists Wolf Vostell and Dick Higgins, and first published by Something Else Press in 1970, 'Fantastic Architecture' anticipated the critiques launched by a new generation of visionary architects in the 1970s. Artists such as Carolee Schneemann, Richard Hamilton, Lawrence Weiner, Jan Dibbets, Jean Tinguely, Joseph Beuys, Claes Oldenburg and others made contributions, which range from the visionary to the absurd to the political, from the epistolary to the outright manifesto. The missives and artworks made for this book show how much visionary architecture was intertwined with all facets of culture and critique.
