GENERAL IDEA "AIDS STAMPS" 1988, UNFRAMED
General Idea formed in 1967 and over the next four decades made a significant contribution in defining postmodern art.
Two of the members, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal died of AIDS in 1994.
General Idea's surviving member, AA Bronson, continues to practice as an independent artist and oversees the representation and exhibition of General Idea’s work internationally.
General Idea's appropriation of Robert Indiana's "LOVE" is their most iconic, daring and potent work from their oeuvre.
While the hijacked image appeared in a variety of guises, including painting, prints and public art, these stamps are rich in meaning, as they best exemplify General Idea's concept of "Image Virus".
Included are some furtive photos from the General Idea retrospective at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
These stamps are documented in the "General Idea: Editions 1969-1994" catalog number 8804/05.
Additional images available by request.
