Notes

Published by The Artists' Press, 1992. Contributing artists: Kendell Geers; Barend de Wet; Jo Ractliffe; Brett Murray; Durant Sihlali; Nicky Blumenfeld; David Koloane; Bonita Alica; Jeffrey S Lok; Joachim Schönfeldt; Marc Edwards; Kagiso Pat Mautloa; Minnette Vári; Penny Mobsby and Robert Weinek.

"When I started The Artists’ Press in 1991, I found myself neighbours with Joachim Schönfeldt in The Bag Factory. We talked about artists’ books and together with Wayne Barker and Robert Weinek of FIG or Famous International Gallery (although it was almost totally unknown) we published GIF 1 in 1992. GIF is FIG spelt backwards and means poison in Afrikaans. We invited anyone interested to produce an edition of 101 prints, which were tipped onto pages that I had printed on an offset press. We launched the book in FIG Gallery’s run down Jeppe Street space, and sold them for R50 per book."

– Mark Attwood, 2017.
