Catalogue Note

When Wolfgang Feelisch founded Vice Versand in 1966, he intended for the publishing house to act as a mail order catalogue for contemporary art. Through supplying works by artists such as Joseph Beuys, Günther Uecker, Dieter Roth and Daniel Spoerri in unlimited editions, Feelisch endeavoured to make contemporary art accessible to many and thus democractic. Together with his artists, Feelisch sought to mould a market for art outside the institutional context. His vision for the art of multiples has shaped many of his artist's practices as we know them today.
