A written documentation of J. H. Kocman’s projects realized between 1965–1973. Organized into various ‘activities,’ including ‘graphic-activity, object-activity, text-activity, poem-activity, book-object-activity, preparated-book-activity, chromatographic-activity, report-activity, bipolar-activity, touch-activity, body-works’ and so on, with a list of works issued under each category. A scarce recording of this Czech avant-garde artist, who frequently erased the boundaries between conceptual art, concrete poetry, mail art, and stamp art during a time when Czechoslovakia was under communist rule. Includes information on Kocman’s exhibitions, publications, biography, and a thoughtful introductory essay by Jirí Valoch, one of Kocman’s frequent collaborator, colleague, and friend.
