AN OPERA (FIRST EDITION). 1963

£850.00

Darmstadt: s.p. (Williams/Fluxus), 1960

178 x 10.5cm (approx), black on white offset lithograph on white paper (consisting of three conjoined, glued sections). the first edition of this script for Williams’ complex libretto for a Fluxus-like performance which he was at pains to point out he first played out during the 1950s. However the best known performance that spawned this edition was at the Schlosskeller-Klub in Darmstadt where Williams was joined by Claus Bremer and Daniel Spoerri who took the other parts. The edition sometimes  found in some copies of Fluxus 1 and but more usually distributed on its own by Maciunas. One small bump on the right hand side about 15cm down but otherwise near fine and remarkably fresh looking and quite rare (even Williams manage to only retain a few copies of the work).
