Berlin: AQ Verlag, n.d (1972)
20 x 20.7cm, unpaginated (c. 112pp) plus pictorial wrappers. A single number of this photographic and art journal - here Boltanski has two original contributions - 10 SCENES DE LA VIE ENFANTINE DE CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI INTERPRETEE LE 12 JUIN 1971 PAR FRANCOISE GUINIOU ET LET PETITS JEAN ET MARTINE and ESSAI DE RECONSTITUTION DES 46 JOURS QUE PRECEDERENT LA MORT DE FRANCOISE GUINIOU (EXTRAITS). Neither to our knowledge is reproduced elsewhere. The former being six b/w images of children acting out scenes from Boltanski's supposed memories. The second the same photographs and more displayed as contact prints from a film role. One is expected (one presumes) to see the latter as the documentation of the previous project and that Francoise Guiniou somehow died soon after the photoshoot.
There are other original pageworks by Paul-Armand Gette, Jean Le Gac, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Jochen Gerz and Anthony McCall.
Not in any catalogue raisonne.
