Lot 85: GENERAL IDEA – AIDS STAMPS, 1988
- Catalog Note: General Idea was a collective of the three Canadian artists Felix Partz, Jorge Zontal, and AA Bronson, who were active from 1967 to 1995. They were pioneers of conceptual and media-based art, and presented their work through unconventional forms such as postcards, prints, wallpaper, balloons, and pins. Much of General Idea’s work addressed the AIDS crisis, and both Partz and Zontal eventually died of AIDS in 1994. This sheet of stamps is part of General Idea’s well-known AIDS campaign, which appropriated Robert Indiana’s iconic “Love” motif.
