description

Artists' book / exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show which opened 23 March, 1971 at Galerie Sonnabend: "As if to highlight the absurdity of the undertaking through exaggerated precision, Christian Boltanski adopted the style of cool objectivity employed in auction catalogues and academic inventories, for the description of these objects which are, in all likelihood, invented." -- from Catalogue: Books, Printed Matter, Ephemera 1966-1991. Text in French.
