Zaj: mostly Madrid, 1965-1982. An impressively large group of 70 printed cards of various dimensions (2.5 x 3.75 in. to 14.5 x 13.75 in.), produced by the Spanish avant-garde troupe Zaj. "The most controversial work that's being done today in theater and music is that being done by Zaj. It is not easy to digest, but it is elegant and unforgettable" (John Cage). Formed in Madrid by Juan Hidalgo, Walter Marchetti, and Ramón Barce in 1964—and later joined by the likes of Esther Ferrer and José Luis Castillejo—Zaj followed the lead of early Fluxus, with a post-musical understanding of the concert as a potential venue for conceptualism, humor, and action. Organizing their first Festival the next year, Zaj pushed this research beyond the concert hall and into the realm of networked space, by adding a Concierto Postal to their programme of live events. From that point on, a significant amount of Zaj's activity took place in the form of cartones; a style of mail-art that—like much about Zaj—resists definition. Present in this unusually deep collection, we can identify at least six genres of cartones: (1) twenty invitations to Zaj concerts and events, often listing their performance programmes; (2) eight greeting cards, mostly wishing their audience a New Year full of meditation; (3) six manifesto texts; (4) seven book announcements; (5) twenty-four poetic or conceptual works, sometimes referred to as etcéteras; (6) and five groups of materials produced to animate Zaj's three early Festivals (1965–1966). Uniformly preserved in near fine to fine condition, with a number of original mailing envelopes included. Click INQUIRE button below to receive a full descriptive list.
