Special List II - Traum der Erkenntnis – Dream of PerceptionPublished on 20 Dec. 2018
When attitudes become Special List II“ (in remembrance of our dear friend Harald Szeemann) represents our intention to acquaint you with printed and graphic material, with great ideas captured on paper, canvas or other carriers by means of a wide variety of techniques. Both the
form of the presentation and the selection of objects result from our continuous attempts to oppose the common trend of apparent arbitrariness. The two antiquarian booksellers (one of them being a gallerist as well) have undertaken their trip culminating in this presentation of offbeat, highquality,
rare – in many cases unique – offers, accompanied by
a young and ambitious art dealer.
We cordially invite you to devote particular attention to
some of our „favorites“, which might arouse your interest and
might even perhaps become yours...
