Frankfurt: Theater Am Turm, 1969
19 x 10.5cm, 24pp. Card covers. The programme for the legendary title performance by Beuys where he fused Goethe and Shakespeare and introduced a live horse on stage. The programme is effectively a Beuys artist’s book with minimal text (title page and inside last page display credits for the production) and appropriated schematic drawings of a schematic cross section of a mouth and tongue making sounds: on the 8th drawing Beuys has overlaid a schematic cross section of a jug as if the mouth were drinking from it or expelling into it. On that page this particular copy has a signature in pencil by Beuys dated 1969. Very slight rusting to staples but otherwise fine – and a very rarely encountered item of which few were signed at the time.
