Kinetische Kunst, Kunstgewerbemuseum, Zürich [Fridolin Müller]

Kinetische Kunst edited by Hans Fischli and Willy Rotzler, 1960. Wegleitung 233, Kunstgewerbemuseum, Zürich. 8.5 x 7.75, n.p. [64] with German text. Printed in Switzerland. Designed by Fridolin Müller.

An important catalog published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name from May—June, 1960. With an Introduction by Fischli (Director of Museum) and Willy Rotzler (Conservator of Museum) and a chronology of kinetic art since 1900. Followed by two brief texts: Alexander Calder Mobiles and Stabiles by Carola Giedion–Welcker and Edition MAT Reproduced Works by Daniel Spoerri.

With photographs of artists, brief profiles and text, and black and white illustrated works from: Alexander Calder, Jacoov Agam, Josef Albers, Pol Bury, Marcel Duchamp, Bo Ek, Karl Gerstner, Heinz Mack, Enzo Mari, Frank Malina, Bruno Munari, Man Ray, Diter Rot, Raphaël-Jésus Soto, Jean Tinguely, and Victor Vasarely.
