“Exceedingly rare complete set of original postcards, published by Klaus Staeck in response to the controversial 4th Documenta show in Kassel in 1968. Each of the postcards is classified as an ‘Originalgrafik’, and this set includes Joseph Beuys’ very first artist postcard. 
This set is special in the fact that every one of the postcards is individually signed by the respective artist. It is not known how many signed sets were ever issued, but it is probable that not more than ten such sets exist. Each postcard’s image is inspired by the Museum Fridericianum in Kassel. 
List of the postcards: 
Nr.1 Joseph Beuys – Friedrichsplatz (documenta IV) – signed in pencil. [Ref. Schellmann, Joseph Beuys – The Multiples, P1, page 410].
