Eric Dietman Tag

Paris: American Center for Students and Artists, October 1969
18 x 28cm, 42pp (mostly printed one side only) plus rubber stamped card covers. Slide binder. The first edition of an assemblage group artist's book with original contributions by Boltanski, Paul-Armand Gette, Jean Le Gac (here Le Gag!), Gine Pane, Ben Vautier, Andre Cadere, Alain Kirili, and Eric Dietman as well as others.
Boltanski's work is a photograph and text showing a supposed 13 of 1,000 roses planted at the American centre on 9th of October 1969 by Boltanski, the other 987, it is claimed, will be planted in Dijon on 20th of November 1969. These claims are probably spurious.
The other contributions are significant and some copies were signed and numbered by Dietman but this is not one of them.
This example is in very good condition and the book is very rare. It is not mentioned to our knowledge in any Boltanski catalogue raisonne.
