100cm x 70cm on heavy paper. Checkerboard pattern with names of the various Fluxus associated artists aligned to each black or white square in a 16 x 4 “board” eg Maciunas presumably a Fluxus ‘puritan’ is on a white square, Friedman himself is also on a white square – ‘Charlotte Mooreman’, for example, is on a black square. Alternatively one could read the board as two conflicting sides squaring up to each other in a Fluxus chess game. Titled, signed (“KF”) and dated in ink. A very desirable work full of insight from a Fluxus insider. Fine estate. Unique. We believe this was Friedman’s first attempt at the work and the second version was his final decision on placement.
