Switzerland: Kunsthalle Bern 1978 24.5 x 24.5cm, unpaginated - approx 80pp plus card covers.

Warsaw: Galerie Foksal PSP, 1978
15 x 21cm, 16pp (self cover) exhibition catalogue but also artist's book displaying the 14 b/w large photographs of everyday objects which could have been from the artist's past such as a toy cowboy or a jigsaw.
An important exhibition which is on the cusp of Boltanski's change of direction - thereafter for a number of years much of his publicly shown artworks were posed photographs of model or meals or diaoramas. This show both relates to the earlier archiving of his past life (truthful or not) and the future deliberately forged pictures. VG+ although some rusting to the staples.
