La Conquête de l'Espace

38 pages in slipcase, offset lithograph, containing silhouettes of a selection of 32 countries of the world shrunk to the same scale as Belgium, with no difference in size, arranged alphabetically. 
Published by Edition Lebeer Hossmann, Brussels and Hamburg.
A tiny and most rare important final artist's book by Broodthaers that plays on language, scale, and function‚ it is transportable, but useless. This book was published shortly before the artist's unexpected death in 1976 thus all copies remain unsigned and are stamped ‚'Estate M Broodthaers'‚ and numbered by the publisher.
