Aspen. (Complete run of 10 issues)
American magazine Aspen, “the first three-dimensional magazine”, was published in ten issues between 1965 and 1971. It was edited by Phyllis Johnson and featured contributions from many renowned and influential artists, among them Andy Warhol, William S. Burroughs, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Marcel Duchamp, Sol LeWitt, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, John and Yoko Ono, Robert Rauschenberg, LaMont Young. The ten issues cover Pop Art, conceptual art, minimalist art, postmodern critical theory, new voices in British arts and culture, the Fluxus group, art and literature of the psychedelic drug movement, and Asian art and philosophy.
‘The editor Phyllis Johnson, who used to spend her winters in Aspen, Colorado, understood that the great spirit of experimentation that defined the art scene in the sixties demanded a new form of presentation. This is how ASPEN. The Multimedia Magazine in a Box was born in 1965. It was the first ever three-dimensional magazine. Subscribers received a box containing material for reading, listening, smelling, observing. John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Marcel Duchamp, Yoko Ono, Robert Rauschenberg, The Velvet Underground and Andy Warhol, among others, collaborated in the project until its demise in 1971. Following the tradition of Marcel Duchamp’s boîte-en-valise, or ‘portable museum’, ASPEN is considered a masterpiece of experimental art and institutional critique.’ – Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona website https://www.macba.cat/en/exhibitions-activities/exhibitions/aspen-multimedia-magazine-box
Complete sets in good condition are extremely rare. This set is entirely complete, with the exception of two minor subscription forms (no doubt completed and returned to receive the next issue!). The boxes show edge wear as usual and the two flimsy card boxes are presented flattened, as they were originally acquired. There is occasional light foxing to a few of the contents. The collection of ephemeral and creative material in Aspen is one of the highlights of artistic publishing in the 1960s.
