VARIA. WIRSCHAFTWERTE. 1980. ONE OF ONLY 3 KNOWN SIGNED, STAMPED & TITLED EXAMPLES ISSUED.
Heidelberg: Edition Staeck, 1980
12.2 x 7.5 x 1.3cm, six green wax crayons in a printed cardboard box with handwritten addition: “1 Wirtschaftswert” as well as Beuys’ signature and red rubber stamp.
This is one of the “economic value” editions released during the installation “Das Wirtschaftswert-PRINZIP” in the Museum Gent, 1980. It is belivied only 3 examples of this particular product were issued as multiples. The products were all found in East Germany by Beuys and chosen for their functional non-branded packaging design. The outer box is a little worn as it was printed in cheap cardboard but else this is VG+ and the crayons unused. Ref: Schellmann Nr 393.
