Marcel Broodthaers - En lisant la Lorelei - mamco 1997
Original title: En lisant la Lorelei / Wie ich die Lorelei gelesen habe (1975).
In the first place Marcel Broodthaers' book « En lisant la Lorelei,... » was exhibited at the Kunstmuseum of Basel in 1974. According to inquiry, it is both a remarkable collection and detailed analysis of this largely unedited corpus. Broodthaers' polymorphic work is genetically decomposed: methods of fragmentation, association strategy, dissemination tactics, poetical mytho-critical rearticulation, spectacle deconstruction, etc. So much intuitiveness and so many gestures against which he declares war.
Second edition published in 1997 in pair with Autour de la Lorelei.
