\r\n_¢‚Ǩ_ìthe german word abartig refers to entartet and to art of course refering to entartete kunst refering to auschwitz. the stuttgart post-fluxus artist albrecht/d. cited a quote hans neuendorf used in an article about german avantgarde art and especially about wolf vostell and turned it into art._Ç hans neuendorf was a german (probadly hamburg) art dealer who in 1973 said some bizarre things about art and german artists. one of his sentences was read, recited or performed by kaprow, paik, vostell, hendricks, toche, sar_ɬ©e and albrecht/d. - the very raw reworkings were released on the tape/cassette "die abartigen" as reflection press # 25.\r\n\r\nand this is what herr neuendorf said:\r\n_Ç \r\n\r\n"zu diesem zweck hat sich eine abart von k_ɬºnstlern herausgebildet, die nur noch den medien dient. zum beispiel vostell. er gibt st_ɬ§ndig pressekonferenzen, oder er gibt _¢‚Ǩ_ìerkl_ɬ§rungen_¢‚Ǩ¬ù ab, aber eine k_ɬºnstlerische leistung liegt nicht vor." - "for this purpose (something like art as spectaculum and sensation... rvd) a de-generation of artists has formed itself to only serve the media. vostell as an example. he is always found in press-conferences or he is providing some declaration: but no artistic work is done (no artistic achievement is on hand)."

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
