NEW YORK: Printed Matter: “Realize Your Desires”

Untitled piece from the library collection in Realize Your Desires / Printed Matter

Opening Reception: Saturday June 18, 5-7 PM

Printed Matter presents Realize Your Desires: Underground Press from the Library of Stefan Brecht, an exhibition of alternative and independently-published newsprint periodicals from the early ‘60s to mid ‘70s. Featuring work from nearly 30 presses with over 400 individual issues, the exhibition highlights both well-recognized and under-known publications, presented from the collection of the late poet, theater critic, and philosopher Stefan Brecht. The exhibition spans across Printed Matter’s back wall and adjoining project room, with hundreds of items available for purchase (several in complete or near-complete runs).

Curated by Max and Solvieg Schumann.

Printed Matter thanks Solveig Schumann and Sebastian Brecht for their assistance with and support of the exhibition.
