General Idea, Luxon V.B.: The 1984 Miss General Idea Pavillion No. 101, self-published, 1973
This artist book was produced in 1973 to accompany General Idea’s Venetian blind window-covering installation Luxon V.B. (1973-74). Made of 168 moveable double-sided mirror slats it allowed the inside of the gallery to be reflected outside and the outside reflected inside. Luxon V.B. was the first “prototype” for The 1984 Miss General Idea Pavillion, a decentralized museum (originally conceived in 1971), which ultimately consisted of various installations in museum collections around the world, collectively forming their own independent museum structure unrelated to the museums that would house them. The booklet sets out the manifesto, “we address ourselves to that exact and exacting space marked by glamour: the interface between one content and context, culture and nature inside and out. Once again utilizing a mirror device, in Venetian Blind format, we isolate a thin slice of unclaimed space between the gallery and the outside world and fill it with white light. This space, unseen, is yet precisely known by each of us. General Idea claims this space.”
