Adam Saroyam
Complete Minimal Poems

Complete Minimal Poems collects Aram Saroyan’s groundbreaking Concrete and minimalist poems of the 1960s in a single volume. First published in 2008, Complete Minimal Poems includes the entire contents of Aram Saroyan (Random House, 1968), Pages (Random House, 1969), The Rest (Telegraph, 1971), as well as Saroyan’s contribution, “Electric Poems,” to the anthology All Stars (Goliard-Grossman, 1972), and a sequence, “Short Poems,” which hasn’t appeared previously. With ties to the work of such writers and artists as e.e. cummings, Andy Warhol, Gertrude Stein, Donald Judd, Ian Hamilton Finlay, and Steve Reich, this collection confirms Aram Saroyan’s place among the most daring and engaging figures in modern poetry. Aram Saroyan is a writer well known for his early minimalist, conceptual, and Concrete poetry of the 1960s. Over the course of the last five decades, Saroyan has written over 30 books in a variety of forms.

Fantastic Architecture

Primary Information is reprinting the seminal book, Fantastic Architecture, making the book widely available for the first time since it was originally published: first in 1969 by Droste Verlag in German (with the title Pop Architektur) and later in 1970 by Something Else Press as Fantastic Architecture. Edited by Dick Higgins and Wolf Vostell, this artist’s book/anthology explores the boundaries between pop art and architecture through writings and projects by key artists and thinkers of the 1960s and earlier—from John Cage and Buckminster Fuller to Kurt Schwitters and Joseph Beuys.  It will retain the book’s unique design, specifically its Mylar inserts, which add unique depth and elaborate the publication’s content.

Contributors to this publication are Ay-O, Joseph Beuys, Erich Buchholz, Pol Bury, John Cage, Philip Corner, Jan Dibbets, Robert Filliou, Buckminster Fuller, Geoffrey Hendricks, Richard Hamilton, Raoul Hausmann, Michael Heizer, Jan Jacob Herman, Bici Hendricks, Dick Higgins, K.H. Hoedicke, Hans Hollein, Douglas Huebler, Milan Knizak, Alison Knowles, Addi Koepcke, Franz Mon, Claes Oldenburg, Dennis Oppenheim, GerhardRühm, Diter Rot, Carolee Schneemann, Kurt Schwitters, Daniel Spoerri, Frances Starr, Jean Tinguely, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, Lawrence Weiner, Stefan Wewerka.

Lutz Bacher
Do You Love Me?


Lutz Bacher is known for diverse conceptual works that span photography, video, sculpture and installation. ‘Do You Love Me?’ is a print extension of Bacher’s video work of the same name, in which she interviews colleagues, friends and family about Bacher “the person” and Bacher “the artist”. The interviews span fifteen years, tracing her evolving career and relationships. Although the artist is always the starting point, these exchanges often reveal more about their subjects than Bacher herself. The publication takes the form of transcripts interwoven with images of artwork from the 1970s to the present, and also includes personal photos, correspondence and ephemera.
