Duhring Duhring: Nous Étions Contre le Pouvoir des Mots Contre le Pouvoir
by Wolman, Joseph Gil
64 pp. artist's book from the avant-garde Lettrist poet, containing the 64 plates of "Duhring Duhring", an appropriation of Friedrich Engels' "Anti-Dühring", from which Wolman excerpted assorted descriptive nouns and arranged them at intervals over the faces of various characters, some drawings and some from photographs. Profusely illustrated. Tabloid. Illustrated self-wrpps., loose as issued. Paris (Imp. Vigie) 1979. "Duhring Duhring" was Wolman's second livre d'artiste, published in the same year as "L'Homme Séparé". In October 1979, Wolman exhibited all 64 plates from the work. Anxious for the accompanying volume to reach wide distribution, he had 5000 copies printed. However, nearly all of those copies were destroyed in an arson fire on November 28, 1980, at the Galerie Speiss warehouse, where both "Duhring Duhring" and "L'Homme Séparé" were being stored. As a result, this article is exceedingly rare; as of July 2016, WorldCat locates only two holdings worldwide and none in North America. (Inventory #: 48521)
