1 Brus, GŁnter Irrwisch
Frankfurt am Main Kohlhunst Verlag 1971 Limited First Edition Wraps Very Good 
Limited edition, one of 500 copies. 4to. 29.5 by 21 cm. Unpaginated, 136 pp., containing over 100 grotesque, S&M and extreme illustrations of erotica (or anti-erotica), seven of which illustrations are in color. Brus, born in 1938, was a founder of the Austrian Actionism Movement in art, a movement that gloried in shocking the public. In "Irrwisch", one can plainly see its roots in Surrealism and more specifically, Dadaism, and in its predilection to shock, such branches of Modernism as Futurism, the movement spearheaded by Marinetti. Brus, like others in the movement, did not confine himself to graphic art, but also engaged in performance art and film-making. Yet perhaps in contrast to other more notorious performance artists, one can see that in "Irrwisch", as in other works by him, that he was also a very proficient artist in terms of more traditional artistic skills. For this reason we find his closest antecedent is an artist like Max Ernst, who also incidentally did serious work in book form, and who also brought an exuberance to the repugnant. Slight darkening of the spine, with a touch of wear along joint edge. Clean and tight otherwise, and arguably in fine condition.
