Panderma, edited by Carl Laszlo, Basel, March 1958. Ephemera, 11 X 16.5”. Condition: Near Fine. The quarter fold poster/broadside is printed in German, French and English with black ink on an orange colored stock. Authored by Carl Laszlo (1923–2013, Hungarian), a publisher, art dealer, collector and psychoanalyst the manifesto is Laszlo’s important work, “his simple but proud contribution to the sovereign nothingness of his time” and claims: “We separate ourselves from any retrogressive tendencies, but declare war against avantgardistic stagnation. The present avantgardism with its dusty belief in progress is stuck to the present. OUR INTEREST IS IN THE FUTURE!” Printed names of its cosigner’s are listed at the bottom: Carl Laszlo, Yvonne Escher, René Mächler, Onorlo Mansutti, Fritz Billeter, Alexander Herz, Christopher Schmidt, Rolf Fenkart, Robert Phillips, Elio Lurati, Paul Vogel, René Scherrer, Kaspar Sulzbachner, Bruno D.
