Brouwn, Stanley. 

£200

Early artist’ book by Suriname born Dutch conceptual artist, Stanley Brouwn.

Tatvan is a location in Turkey where a railway line ends abruptly. Brouwn traveled to Tatvan and took photographs in the direction of the imagined railway extension. However these are not featured in the book; the publication gives only a number of “conceived” distances (one on each page): x - Tatwan 1 Km; x - Tatwan 1000 Km, etc… — Reference: Harry Ruhé, “Stanley Brouwn. A chronology”, Amsterdam 2001; “Fluxus. A Creative Revolution”, Chiasso, 1962-2012, p. 206.
