Asphyxiating Culture and Other Writings with an Introduction by Thomas M. Messer.
by [Art Essays] Dubuffet, Jean.

Publisher Information:
Four Walls Eight Windows,, New York:: 1988..

A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This volume of Dubuffet's writings contains four long essays in which the artist discusses and explains his personal philosophy of art and its relationship to culture. The four pieces include: Asphyxiating Culture, Demagnetization of Brains, A Word About the Company of Raw Art, and Remarks on the Unveiling of the Group of Four Trees. Dubuffet's thinking and art was radical in its poetic call to arms against a culture that would stamp out any fascination with and ownership of day to day life. These essays speak to his deepest beliefs as manifest in his art.
