JANOS GAT GALLERY ANNOUNCES PUBLICATION OF A LIMITED EDITION OF DOCUMENT 2 AND 3 MADE BY PAUL THEK AND EDWIN KLEIN. Purchase here.

Janos Gat Gallery of New York is proud to announce the publication of a boxed two-volume limited edition of 350 copies of Document 2 and 3 Made by Paul Thek and Edwin Klein. Each of the volumes are numbered with a foreword by Gary Indiana. Document 2 is signed by Edwin Klein.

Important collaborative works, Document 2 and 3 were created in Amsterdam in 1973 by American artist Paul Thek (1933-1988) and the Dutch photographer and designer Edwin Klein (1946- ). Done in the same manner as Document 1 (jointly published by the Stedelijk Museum and the Moderna Museet in 1969), Document 2 and 3 follow Klein’s original concept of what a book should be and Thek’s wish to turn his diary into artworks: three-dimensional albums, each double page a photograph of a still life with pictures, drawings, books, cards and objects. Manipulated by Thek and Klein, the pictures and the objects change from one image to the next.

While Document 1 has the dimensions of a broad sheet newspaper, Document 2 and 3 follow the size of the artist’s notebooks. Document 2, as Document 1, is in black and white; Document 3 is in color. Document 1 becomes three-dimensional on viewing; Document 2 and Document 3 burn at the last pages. Document 1 was much acclaimed at the time of its publication, and all copies quickly sold out.

Throughout his career, Paul Thek questioned the validity of the idea of solo authorship: its negation was at the heart of his oeuvre. He believed, in the context of the time, in a group political ethos. Creativity, for him, was an essentially collaborative event, reflecting in some ways the work of the pyramid and cathedral builders. He saw each one of his installations as the spontaneous result of a group with shared sensibilities, thinking as one mind.

Beate Svedhoff, a Swedish reviewer, called Paul Thek’s work the new Walden: "Thek and his friends have built up a nature which they look after like temple servants: a nature which has the signs of togetherness—but which cannot keep out death. The transcendental, pantheistic feeling is also present. Everything is included—even what we are running away from. And there is an attempt to forget that the end is near. To understand is impossible. To know is possible—to feel is possible: to intuit. This probably explains why, in 1966, Susan Sontag dedicated Against Interpretation to Paul Thek."

The original photographs of Document 1 were exhibited, for the first time, at the Janos Gat Gallery in 2002. Document 2 and 3 were first seen by the public at an exhibition at the gallery from April 19th to September 24th, 2005.
