Jürgen Olbrich, Nothing, Germany, 2023

A mini-accordion book from this German post-neo-fluxus-networker and busy conceptual artist who I've been corresponding with for a couple of decades. With his theme of 'nothing' we actually get something, which is a series of cancelled stamps lifted from their original contexts and strung together into this accordion and then despite, or maybe because of, their cancelled status, they now are stamped with 'nothing' — a double cancelling, or nothing, as it were. 

5 single-sided pages, individually 2.75" x 2" and fully open 10".

ps: check out this other 'erased' accordion by Olbrich on this blog: Jürgen O. Olbrich, Erased Series, Germany, 1999.
