The Edizioni Conz of the Italian collector, publisher and photographer Francesco Conz – including portfolios, large silkscreen prints on fabrics and objects – are among the finest and most elaborate art editions of the second half of the 20th century. A friend and patron of Viennese Actionism, Fluxus, Concrete Poetry, and Lettrism, he was an obsessive, knowledgeable enthusiast open to all the arts, for whom hospitality, the magic of community, and respect for the arts were more important than any mercantile aspirations.
