So I forgot something in June. On June the 1st 1987 I did a second installment of a xerox art at Parkzicht in Rotterdam. My diary says: "The second copy-art installation was planned for that evening (party of the Art-Academie of Rotterdam), but as we were not allowed to use any paper in the building, and outside the wind was to hard, this installation did not really appeared. Music that was made for this evening is later on used as Frag/Ele/Ment (Kapot Produkt 00Q). Kapotte Muziek did join however Thu 20 (also performing that night) on vocals in the last piece they played that evening (this piece is released on Harsh Ears Now!! 5 by Midas Tapes)."
Frag/Ele/Ment mentioned here was released in September 1987. A carton archive box, filled with 75 xeroxes, 20 slides and a one sided c60 tape. The idea was that anybody who bought one could use these in any form (attached to the wall, boxes, objects) and make his own installation. Some actually did, but I must admit I seen very few documentation. I used the xeroxes earlier this year when I did a display at Extrapool of record and tape covers as a background. The download contains the music and the booklet, not the xeroxes or the slides.
