Michael Asher is known for the so-called “Situational Aesthetics”, a movement in Conceptual art that is critical on what defines art and on the production of commodities. Marcel Duchamp pointed out to a paradigm in the arts by inserting an already made object within an art context. It exposed the legitimising function of an institution and its crucial role in defining of what should be considered as art.

GOLDEN, DAAN VAN multiples printed matter

DAAN VAN GOLDEN, untitled, 2017 [Souvenir]

DAAN VAN GOLDEN, untitled / Souvenir, 2017
3 parts
screen print on fabric: 10,5 x 12,9 cm / gold envelope: 11 x 15,6 cm
condition: excellent
“Souvenir” recto and initial “D” verso on outer envelope: 12 x 18,1 cm
poor condition; scuffing, stains
private collection
inv.DvG 000-pr

This gold envelope with screen print on vinyl cloth depicts a characteristic dark red Daisy pattern that Daan van Golden often uses in his paintings and photographs. There is no sign of origin.

A white outer envelope entitled “Souvenir” contains the edition. At the back side a ‘D’ in print refers to the first name of the artist. The envelope’s colour in gold alludes with the surname of Daan van Golden. The grey line frame on the white envelope suggests that this item was perhaps a thank object presented to people for their compassion and sympathy after Daan van Golden deceased in 2017. Any form of origin of publication is lacking.
