BIRRC-A0888a.jpg

This collection is made up of a single box-file containing 45 images from Eduardo Paolozzi's files. The sizes of the prints vary from relatively small (15x19cm) to larger then A4 (29x41cm). Most of the images are hand-torn, creased, and adhered to papers and boards in various colours, and were given to Paolozzi by American ex-servicemen. The title for the series was taken from a quote by the American car manufacturer Henry Ford, who was quoted as saying 'History is more or less bunk.' Ford, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, was the advocator of an economic system entitled Fordism, by which workers were paid higher wages in order to be able to indulge in the benefits of mass production and consumerism. This is a standard edition of these prints.
