Beuys, Joseph / Paik, Nam June
In memoriam: George Maciunas... Klavierduett Joseph Beuys & Nam June Paik.
Berlin: Galerie René Block, 1978.

#17324. Postcard invitation (15 x 10.5 cm.), illustrated after photograph of Maciunas in gorilla mask. This copy mailed, with Stuttgart address to verso and corresponding postmarks.

To commemorate their late associate (if-not-quite “friend”) George Maciunas, Beuys and Paik gave this 74 minute concert at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf; the timing being the inverse of Maciunas’ final count of 47 years. Said Beuys: “We didn’t agree beforehand what we were going to do.”
