The present lot comprises 74 signed colour photographs of the works in the exhibition, taken during the show and accompanied by their negatives. It also includes seven posters from each of the exhibition venues, as well as the exhibition catalogue.
On 24 July 1976, Dieter Roth & Richard Hamilton unveiled their joint exhibition Collaborations at the Galeria Cadaqués, comprising 74 works made on-site over a three-week period. Though the two artists had worked together on previous projects, having first met in 1961, the exhibition was their largest collaboration to date. It featured, among other works, a group of paintings, sculptures and reliefs that payed tribute to an idea discussed with Marcel Broodthaers before his death the previous year: an exhibition aimed at dogs, with artworks hung at their level, featuring specifically canine subject matter – most notably sausages. These pieces formed the inspiration for a story, which the artists drafted verbally whilst looking at transparencies of the works. The dialogue was then recorded to two 45 rpm extended-play discs, with Roth and Hamilton alternating lines between them; the second disc featured a local dog barking to guitar backing provided by the artists.
