«Topographie anecdotée du hasard» or «Anecdoted topography of coincidence»

The book appeared on the occasion of Daniel Spoerri’s first exhibition at the Galerie Lawrence in Paris and can be seen as a kind of theoretical program for the “Snare-picture”. In this book, all objects are described, which were lying on a kitchen table at a certain moment in time. In later editions, comments and associations by Spoerri’s friends Robert Filliou, Emmett Williams and Dieter Roth were added.
Recently at the Swiss National Library, which is responsible for the Spoerri Archive, a series of readings took place, where the participants grappled intensively with “Topography”.
At the Neue Museum Weserburg in Bremen extensive materials on the development of this book are on display.
