Exhibition at the Bickelmuseum August – September 2010. Videofragments of the room and works by Karl Bickel and Hans-Ruedi Fricker. Documented by Ruud Janssen and Litsa Spathi. The room at the Bickelmuseum was constructed with 9 square rooms in which each selections of works. The works couldn’t be seen outside the boxes. The exhibition was a beautiful surprise. Outside the boxes there were some selections of Hans-Ruedi’s famous shields. Also a reading table with quite unique books from the world of artistamps.

Guy stamped the envelope and also placed some delightful rubberstamps on the backside:
The booklet inside looks like this:
