The History of Nothing and Other Excursions - Eduardo Paolozzi
|Art Publishing Inc.
In 1962 Eduardo Paolozzi made his famous film 'History of Nothing'. A surrealist collage in time, it is a twelve-minute paean to the broad and mysterious culture of the mid-twentieth century.In 1975 the curator and critic Jasia Reichardt, in collaboration with Paolozzi, wrote 'The History of Nothing and Other Excursions', a fascinating and previously unpublished essay about the making and ideas that informed the project. This volume contains this essay, unpublished until now, with others by Reichardt and Paolozzi, alongside the artist's collages and working notes for the film.
