About This Item

[Nos. 2 through 5/6 carry the subtitle: "Zeitschrift Zwischen Basel und New York."] Six numbers in five fascicles (160, 160,130,120,156 pp.) comprising a complete run of the photographically illustrated magazine published by Hungarian-Swiss art dealer and psychoanalyst Carl Laszlo. 4to, ca. 30 cm. Each issue contains an original photographic print: no. 1 (1982) Mapplethorpe, Robert. Portrait of William S. Burroughs, 1982. Unsigned. Verso stamps of the photographer, Radar, and C.L.A.G. Print shows light surface marks and marginal toning ; no. 2 (1983) Manon. Self-portrait. Unsigned, with verso stamps of the photographer and C.L.A.G. Near fine ; no. 3 (1984) Malanga, Gerard. Portrait of Taylor Mead. Signed in the print and dated 1971 at lower right, verso stamps of the photographer, Radar, and C.L.A.G. Near fine ; no. 4 (1984) Bokris, Victor. Portrait of William S. Burroughs. Unsigned, verso stamps of the photographer, Radar, and C.L.A.G. Excellent, with light marginal toning ; no. 5/6 (1988) lacks the called for "Fotokomposition, 1985" by Erik H. Olson. In its place, this exemplar comes with an original photographic print showing Mapplethorpe in conversation with Laszlo, signed in ink on the verso "Für Stefan" by Carl Laszlo and "[copyright] Michael Heitmann '82" by the photographer. Near fine. All photos approx. 6x8 to 8x10 in. Journals are all very good, a few with light rubbing at the extremities. Illus. stiff wraps, embossed in metallic inks, extremities a bit rubbed. [599]

The exuberant Radar presents Laszlo's mediation on the connections between the European avant-gardes and American beats (particularly William S. Burroughs) woven through the emerging punk and contemporary art worlds of the 1980s. Contributors included Mapplethorpe, Burroughs, Victor Bokris, Christopher Makos, Gerard Malanga, Tseng Kwon Chi, Walter Stedding, Marcia Resnick, Legs McNeil, Richard Hell, Michael Barfuss, Michael Heitmann, Herbert Huncke, Rene Mati, Patricia Highsmith, Allen Ginsberg, and others. Deported to Auschwitz in 1944, and freed in Theresienstadt during the last days of the war, Carl Laszlo moved to Basel to complete his medical studies and later, to Zurich, where he became a student of the renowned psychiatrist Lipót Szondi. Around the same time, Laszlo began trading works of art. In addition to Radar, he published the journal Panderma and a collection of punk photography called No Future.
