During the 1940s and 1950s, the Affichistes appeared in Paris with a new and
revolutionary artistic format: the tearing down of posters. In the resulting looted
random images, they created a radical contradiction to the dominant abstract
painting of the postwar period. This catalog, accompanying the exhibition by
Museum Tinguely and the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, provides a comprehensive
look at activities spanning two decades (1948-68) by an important postwar
avant-garde in France including artists Raymond Hains, Jacques Villeglé, François
Dufrêne, Mimmo Rotella, and Wolf Vostell. Highlighting their backgrounds in
decollage, action and happening, this handsome oversized book allows for
beautiful reproductions of their complex collaged works, which appear still
fresh and radiant today. A full chronology and timeline of the movement is included
in the back along with interviews or writings about the artists by curators
Esther Schlicht and Roland Wetzel plus Bernard Blistene, Fritz Emslander,
Didier Semin and Dominique Stella.
