"In 1971, Harald Szeeman invited the American sculptor and installation pioneer Paul Thek (1933-1988) to contribute to documenta 5. Szeemann had titled one section of the exhibition 'Individual mythologies, ' describing a new kind of art structured around mythologies invented by artists, rather than by a culture. Thek's contribtion came to be seen as a paradigm of this trope. -- Paul Thek in process evolved out of the discovery of an unrealized publication project initiated while installing his first space-filling environment, Pyramid/A work in progress at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in the winter of 1971, which was to have been released for documenta 5. For this endeavor, an extraordinary number of images were taken-about 800-capturing the progress of the installation, the opening, and the final state of this pivotal work of 1970s installation art"--Page 4 of cover

"The document follows my concept of what a book should be like, and Paul's wish to turn his diary into a kind of catalogue - a three-dimensional album, each double page a photograph of a still life with pictures, drawings, books, cards, and objects...The book has the dimensions of an open newspaper, actual size. Turning the pages of the document, one turns the pages of a diary. The pictures and the objects placed on the newspaper keep changing and seem to be in constant movement. Most of the photographs are from the studio, documenting works in progress created for the Stedelijk Museum exhibition. There are pictures from other exhibitions, porno magazines, whatever was lying around, everything that surrounded us in our daily life." - Edwin Klein -- printedmatter.org (viewed 12/6/13)
