roth-enticity..or dieter counterfeiter?

is it real or memorex?
gotta love the ebay..





well, it looks genuine to me..that is, once you get past the 2nd rate, shit quality photo documentation. chuck and i saw a ton of these postcards at last year's dieter roth retrospective in new york. archiving's a challenge since both sides are desirable. if i remember right, the curators floated the postcards in a giant glass sandwich case, so you could see both sides. pretty smart..

Thanks for the link to dieter roth. I know I've seen some of his art, but I thought he also did some minimalistic style writing too. I just wish I could remember where I thought I saw it.

You also surprised me with the detritus.net site. Did you get a chance to look at the "photostatic" archive there too? Incredible to see it archived!

yeah, dieter's one of my all time favorites. and the auction's already up to around $100. i think it's the real deal..

and i haven't had much of a chance to poke through the detritus.net site yet, but it's on my 'MUST DO' list. it's such a huge offering..i stumbled upon it because of the tape-beatles connection and found out there's so much more to it. emailed 2 of the public works band members a few times (john and lloyd) and they're super nice. we're from iowa, what can i say? anyway, i'll be visiting that site on and off when i have free time. do you have the exact link where the 'photostatic' archive is? thanks!

that's the page! It's amazing seeing it archived. Lots of stuff that I thought might interest you.

It's the zine that got me first interested in collage/photocopy.
