Fandangos

The complete set of Fandangos periodical, the important and highly sought-after artist periodical edited by the Colombian-born artist Raul Marroquin, Ger van Dijck, Marjo Schumans, Ulises Carrion and others. Some issues are subtitled ‘Fandangos – The Most Important European Art Scandalpaper – Fandangos isn’t an art paper but an art piece’. Indeed, Fandangos is seen as one of the most important conceptual art magazines from the Netherlands, which shows the importance of South American avant-garde artists to the conceptual art scene of The Netherlands in the 1970s. A full description of each item is available on request.

Ian Hamilton Finlay

Archive of postcards by Ian Hamilton Finlay, including a stunning sequence of the most significant cards from the earliest years. Probably the most complete archive of cards one will see available for purchase – collected over 25 years. Finlay’s postcards, often screenprinted, are seen as particularly important – often the first appearance of ideas the artist later uses in large scale works – always pragmatic, witty, salient – a unique dialogue of ideas. Over 600 cards.
