A French translation of artist Allan Kaprow’s How to Make a Happening, eleven rules on how, and how not, to make a Happening. Originally released as an audio piece on 12 inch LP in 1966, this edition refers to the original format by dividing the book into two ‘sides’, requiring the reader to flip the book over to read the second half. The publication was produced as an informal pocket book, printed in black on inexpensive paper, acknowledging Kaprow‘s use of disposable materials and his attempts to relate art production with daily life.
