£220.00

Brussels: Edition Pour, 1975

36 x 29cm, 4pp, printed red and black on cream paper. The first edition of this newspaper Published on the occasion of the first presentation of the Poipoidrome at the Palais des Beaux-Arts during the collective exhibition “12 x 1 (Europalia France)” in November to December 1975 in Belgium. Texts in French, Flemish and English.

Fillou and Pfeufer had invented this theoretical meeting and work space with the name being constructed of the nonsense “poi-poi” and “drome”.  The idea of the space would be variable and fixed to the circumstances or surroundings of the installation.  The tabloid explains this idea and has b/w illustrations displaying artists building such a space and facsimile texts in Filliou’s hands.

Additionally inserted into the outer 4 pages is a 36 x 29cm, 2pp printed multiple with the repeated texts Poïpoï; Anti Poïpoï; Post Poïpoï in red and an offset  reproduced title label in black.

There are small issues here – the paper is browning after 45 years, there is minor edge wear and small chips on all sheets, someone has written “Marianne Goodeman De Multiplel and Graphic” (sic) in ink on the last page.  and the entire publication has been folded horizontally in the past but this is a scarce and important early FIlliou especially with the print multiple included.
