Edition: There was a signed edition of 120. Ours comes from the unlimited unsigned edition Publishers: Edition Staeck, Heidelberg Note: Filzpostkarte (by Joseph Beuys) is not just the title of the item, it is also a play with words: Fil postkarte – felt postcard-, and Feldpostkarte – a postcard sent to and from soldiers on in the battlfield. Joseph Beuys’s “Filzpostkarte,” reflects the artist’s esteem for the postcard in general because of its double function as a vehicle for communication and a simple artistic medium. He, therefore trans ferred a multitude of materials, important to his work - like wood, copper and even sulphur- into the form of a postcard.

The readymades of Marcel Duchamp are ordinary manufactured objects that the artist selected and modified, as an antidote to what he called "retinal art”. Individual pieces were described as "an ordinary object elevated to the dignity of a work of art by the mere choice of an artist. By simply choosing the object (or objects) and repositioning or joining, tilting and signing it, the object became art. “ As the process involved the least amount of interaction between artist and art, it represented the most extreme form of minimalism up to that time. . #fairheadfineart🇬🇧 #Duchamp #MarcelDuchamp #readymades #Ordinaryobject
