Content
Franz Erhard Walther’s book »Objekte, benutzen« (Objects, use), which was published in 1968 by Gebrüder König, Cologne and New York, is one of the rarest and most valuable books in the history of art. The artist demonstrates how the objects of his famous “1. Werksatz” (Set of works no. 1) can be used. This was a decisive moment and an early contribution to the performative turn in sculpture.

This new edition of Walther’s book features the facsimiles of the artist’s original text drawings, not the typographic transposition of the first edition. The rediscovery of the originals in the artist’s private archive provided the opportunity of printing a second edition of »Objekte, benutzen«, which includes much new material and texts. Thus this edition can also be considered as original
