lan Wilson conceived Section 1 as early as 1971 and published these numbered artist books from the 1980s onwards. He described the production of these books as a research to see what he could do as an alternative to speech. Wilson first experimented with the concepts of the known and unknown, and subsequently reduced to using the same text throughout an entire book: 'unknowable,' 'absolute knowledge' and since 1993 'perfect.' These explorations helped him formulate the concept of 'pure awareness' which became the central notion of his Discussions. In the beginning, the books were published in an edition of 500.
From the 1990s Wilson started producing Sections as unique books composed in sets of between 5 and 26 books each. Sections were published by various institutions including Van Abbemuseum, Kunsthalle Bern and by private patrons such as Giuseppe Panza di Biumo, Robert Ryman, amongst others.
Section 30 was published in 1982 by Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven and questions this notions of known and unknown, dear to him.
