S.M.S. Shit must stop
March 22 to April 23, 2014
Helga Maria Klosterfelde Edition Berlin
In 1968 William Copley published the series S.M.S. (SHIT MUST STOP) with Dmitri Petrov through The Letter Edged in Black Press. Starting March 21, Helga Maria Klosterfelde Edition will be showing the 73 original multiples.
“…S.M.S. turned art into the vehicle of Utopian wishes. First it removed all boundaries between the mediums. Everything, from poetry to performance to traditional print making, received equal treatment…Sending art into the world through the mail, it immersed art in the currents of real time…” (From a text by Carter Ratcliff)
With works by Arman, Richard Artschwager, Enrico Baj, James Lee Byars, John Cage, Christo, Walter de Maria, Marcel Duchamp, Richard Hamilton, Neil Jenney, On Kawara, Joseph Kosuth, Roy Lichtenstein, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Meret Oppenheim, Mel Ramos, Man Ray, Bernar Venet and others.
The exhibition will run from March 22 to April 23.
