HERMANN NITSCH: POSTCARD ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE ACTION "ORGIES MYSTERIES THEATRE"
(NITSCH, HERMANN).. Venice & Los Angeles, CA. ND (1978).: Some Serious Business & The Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art. First Edition. 8vo. Printed Card Stock. Performance Announcement. Fine.. One 3 ¼ x 5 ½" USPS 9¢ postcard printed offset verso only, no illustrations. This is the announcement for the first Los Angeles performance by noted Viennese Actionist and Performance artist Hermann Nitsch - which featured then-Cal Arts student Mike Kelley as a participant!. The 1978 event occurred so spontaneously that the promoters mis-spelled his last name here and had to send these cards with the "s" added in red ink by hand due to the lack of time and funds to enable it to be reprinted. A most handsome unmailed example of this exceedingly uncommon ephemeral item. Inventory Number: 023181
