Interview with curator, dealer and publisher Seth Siegelaub. Siegelaub pioneered new strategies for the presentation and distribution of contemporary art in the 1960s under the trade name International General. His most radical policy shifted emphasis to the catalogue as an exhibition space, where the page showed the work itself, absent of commentaries. What in fact was a temporary dispensation from the need for gallery space, freed thinking for a re-evaluation of how artworks could be accessed differently and distributed cheaply through publications – whether catalogues, artists’ books or magazines – and mail art. The interview is published in 'From Conceptualism to Feminism: Lucy Lippard's Number Shows 1969-1974'.
