When the European Fluxus group disbanded in 1964 after two eventful years, Tomas Schmit (1943–2006), who had participated in the group's live actions, withdrew from performance and, from 1966, devoted himself primarily to writing and drawing. This volume documents those works.
Fluxus writer and artist Tomas Schmit died in Berlin in 2006. At the time, this previously privately-published inventory of his work was left on his computer, referred to as a “Skeleton” and an “apparition.” The sequence of texts, font and line spacing are exactly as he left them.

The German Fluxus artist Tomas Schmit worked in actions, concepts, language pieces, texts, books, editions and, especially, the enigmatic, questioning, often humorous drawings gathered in this small, four-decade survey--published one year after the artist's 2006 death in Berlin.
