description

A tabloid style artists' project based on notions of exchange between Huebler and fifty artists. Text from cover: "50 signed original copies of this statement, (priced at $150 each), will constitute the only from of this piece for an indeterminate period of time. When the entire edition has been sold, presumably to 50 different 'owners', the net proceeds resulting from its sale will be used to structure and execute its final destiny..." Text from first interior page: "After a period of months had passed no collector had purchased PART I of this work so it was re-designed in the following way: fifty people, not necessarily artists, were asked to accept the statement that constituted PART I in exchange for 'something of yours that you value as being worth $150.' As no 'net proceeds' resulted from the exchanges the 'final destiny' of the piece takes the form of the publication 'of all documents that accumulate as a result of its completion.' An edition of 2,000 newspaper type publications has been printed in order to bring the information concerning this work to a more general and larger audience at a very low cost..."
