Lacking title page and 2 pages of thumb nail content. Interior in near fine to fine condition. Xartwalls was created in 1971 by xartcollections whose concept was to industrially produce three dimensional "Multiples" and to make contemporary art available to a large public. Its "Multiples" were sold worldwide in art galleries, design- and furniture stores. Among others, internationally renowned artists Getulio Alviani, Allen Jones, and Peter Phillips (whose work is present in this catalog), participated in the project. Its offspring, Xartwalls industrially produced wallpapers designed by known artists such as Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle. Catalog is accompanied by two rolls of original wallpaper with designs by Tinguely and de Saint Pahlle, which are also represented in our copy. Rolls in fine condition with one still in its original shrink wrap. "Xart Walls" were manufactured by Marburg Wallcoverings in Kirchhain, Germany. Contents: Paul Wunderlich - Faltenwurf Jean Tinguely - Vive la liberté Peter Phillips - Kenya Niki de Saint Phalle - Nana Allen Jones - Right Hand Lady Werner Berges - Beauty Getulio Alviani - Testura Grafica Otmar Alt - Happy Cow "Kunst und Publikum 1972. 1972 gibt es keine vorherrschende Kunstrichtung mehr. Viele, zum Teil extrem divergierend, bestehen und behaupten sich gleichzeitig. Das ist gut so. Denn das Nebeneinander verschiedenster Tendenzen und Experimente hat seinen Grund nicht in der Mode-Anfälligkeit der Künstler. Es entspricht vielmehr der Vielschichtigkeit der modernen Industriegesellschaft mit Ihren unzähligen Gesichtern und Perspektiven. Zudem: Die Kunst, bis vor kurzem Privileg einer kleinen Minderheit, erreicht heute breite Schichten. Sie wird diskutiert wie noch nie und - sie wird gekauft. Wir sind auf dem Weg zu einer bisher unbekannten Verbreitung und Popularisierung der bildenden Kunst. Beweise sind die Erfolge progressiver Kunstveranstaltungen wie der 4. documenta Kassel oder des Kölner Kunstmarktes. Beweis ist die große Nachfrage nach erschwinglicher Kunst; nach guter Grafik, nach Multiples und nach Kunstplakaten. Die xartwalls reflektieren diese Tendenz zur Verbreitung und Popularisierung moderner Kunst und schaffen einen neuen Kunsttyp: Die Kunstwand" (from introduction). Bookseller Inventory # 29894
