According to popular belief, there were no urinals in museums and art galleries before 1917. Allegedly, Marcel Duchamp was the first to introduce one of these useful objects into an exhibition space. Nearly a century later they are ubiquitous. Captured during a six month sojourn through Europe, this book presents a selection of the finest art museum urinals on the continent.
Published in 2012 as a contribution to ABCED, an ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative project in celebration of Ed Ruscha’s seventy-fifth birthday. The book was taken out of circulation on the occasion of Ed Ruscha’s seventy-sixth birthday on December 16th, 2013.
