Maria Eichhorn, 72 Bilder (72 Pictures), supplement to catalogue 'Der zerbrochene Spieger: Positionen zur Malerei,' Museumquartier Messepalast, Vienna, 1993

This gatefold accordion catalogue was published as a supplement to the exhibition catalogue for Der zerbrochene Spiegel: Positionen zur Malerei (The Broken Mirror: Positions on Painting) co-curated by Kasper Konig and Hans-Ulrich Obrist and shown originally at the Museumquartier Messepalast, Vienna, 1993. 

These minimalist works were created during Eichhorn's 1992/93 exhibition Qui, Quoi, Ou, at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville Paris. A German artist known for her site-specific works, she represented Germany at the 2022 Venice Biennale. While a relatively traditional gatefold accordion publication, however, I particularly enjoy the pure visuality of all these differently colored paintings when the catalogue is unfolded.

On the reverse side is information about each individual work including date and the title/color of each work in 3 languages

6 double-sided pages, individually 8.25" x 5.75" and when fully opened 2ft 10.5".
