UN REGARD MODERNE #1 (Paris: Liberation, March 1978).
Tabloid newspaper format. 32pp. Ed. Liberation/Bazooka. The second of six issues published between January and July 1978 (the pilot issue was designated #0).
Front cover by Loulou Picasso, founding member of the Bazooka collective along with Kiki Picasso, Lulu Larsen, Olivia Clavel, Bernard Vidal, Ti5 Dur and Jean Rouzaud, all of whom contribute.
Un Regard Moderne came about following the Bazooka Collective’s short-lived collaboration with the socialist newspaper Liberation in 1977, and Olivia Clavel’s self-confessed intention to “fuck the shit out of it”. Though co-published by Liberation, Un Regard Moderne was editorially independent, with a defiant stance in tune with the punk zeitgeist: the back cover of this issue declares in ransom-style lettering - “Mon papi s’appelle art Moderne mais Je Ferai mieux Que Lui” (“My grandpa is called Modern art but I Will do better Than Him”).
Two short, closed tears to upper edge affecting first 15 pages, o/w a Near Fine and unfolded copy of this provocative and extremely influential graphic journal.
