A Man Climbs A Mountain Because It Is There A Man Makes a Work of Art because It Is Not There / Andre, Carl ; Cladders J., 1968
This is Carl Andre's first one man show in a musem and his first catalogue. Johannes Cladders wrote the German text for the book object. All the English texts are in Andre's own handwriting and appear to be printed offset though another process might have been used. On the folder cover, Andre writes, "A man climbs a mountain because it is there. A man makes a work of art because it is not there." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
The images of the letters listed as the title are designed in a positive/negative mode, one letter to a print, reminiscent of the print, "Negative," by Ann Noel, also held in the Sackner Archive. The original portfolio was discarded owing to water damage in an accident; some of the prints have signs of water damage at their bottoms. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
