Filliou, Robert / Pfeufer, Joachim
Out of the Poïpoïdrome. Prototype 00.
Circa 1975.


#17306. A group of three stamp-art specimens; stamped in black ink to rolodex cards (7.5 x 13 cm.). Fine.



A long-term collaboration between Robert Filliou and architect Joachim Pfeufer, the Poïpoïdrome was a spatial heuristic—as well as an “ambulant structure,” built from wood, string, bottles, and eggs—for understanding Art as an activity of permanent creation; taking its name from the poipoi greeting of the Dogon peoples.

Here: a business card for the duo’s Poipoi Foundation, which features a diagram of the concept; accompanied by two additional specimens of stamp-art from Filliou, reminiscent of his categorical Principe d’équivalence stamp (i.e. “bien fait, mal fait, pas fait”).
