Description

Documents and Scripts of the Performances:

Stars, Moveyhouse, Massage, The Typewriter, with annotations by the author

Claes Oldenburg, the artist who set new terms for sculpture in the 1960s, is well known for his soft sculptures and his ‘colossal monuments’ based on ordinary objects. Because they have been less documented, Oldenburg’s performances from that time have not been fully integrated into the critical discourse surrounding his work. In 1972, Oldenburg scrupulously assembled every bit of textual material relating to the performances Stars, Moveyhouse, Massage, and The Typewriter for this book. According to his specifications, the text in the book was typed rather then set and appears on only one side of the page. Examples of the original manuscript are reproduced in sixty-three script plates, including stage plans, scores, sketches for programs and posters. More than two hundred annotations by the author expand the text. Reprinting has meticulously followed the original design. Raw Notes will be indispensable as a document of this important aspect of Oldenburg’s work.
