First edition.

Fine.
“Dieses Heft isr ein Mythos” (This booklet is a myth).

Literature:
Denys Zacharopoulos, art historian, art critic, curator, in the catalogue of the exhibiton "La Nourriture comme Présence à Soi et comme Présence à l'Autre" (Food as Presence to Self and as Presence to the Other), at the Musée des civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, (Mucem), Marseille, 2014: "Baumgarten, who lived with the Yanomami Indians in the Amazon, has collaborated with the important anthropologist Michael Oppitz; they created together a work (a filing cabinet with drawers filled with feathers of eagle on which were inscribed all the names of the tribes of the Indians of America) and a book, T’E-NE-T’E. Eine mythologische Vorführung, in reference to the myths and mores that the different cultures of Native Americans developed beginning with the eagle and its wings (1972- 1974)".

2) BROODTHAERS, Marcel
:Fuchs / Véritable Eau de Cologne

Designed in the form of an invitation card but, as well as a pipe may not be a pipe, "This is not an
invitation card"!
It is a more a manifesto.
A manifeso in shape of an invitation, at the same format, the same appearance.This is not an usual invitation to an exhibition like the other 100 Broodthaers has created. There has never been any exhibition corresponding to this card.
This is in fact an element of a long discussion between L. Baumgarten and M. Oppitz on one side and M. Broodthaers on the other about the status of the object (and the eagle) of art.
Letterpress on card.
Black on front side, black and red on the reverse side.
10.5 x 14.8 cm.

Literature:
Deborah Schultz, Trinity College University of Oxford: ‘Marcel Broodthaers: Strategy And Dialogue”. 2 volumes, doctoral thesis in philosophy, 1998. Extract from this brillant thesis, p. 163:
"(…) A further response, and not without a hint of irony, was made by Baumgarten and Oppitz in their 1974 joint exhibition TE-NE-TE eine mythologische Vorfuhrung (A Mythological Presentation). On one side of the invitation card was a photograph of an eagle with ‘Hommage à M.B., Aigle’ typed below. On the other side of the card the word ‘Rabe’ (raven) was printed in red. The date, address and authors of the show was typed below, defining it as ‘an exhibition for the mind and the intellect’. Broodthaers responded immediately and sent back a reply card which took the same format as the invitation. On one side he printed double-headed eagle crests under the title ‘Veritable Eau de Cologne’. Beneath this he typed a statement in a mixture of German and French: ‘To L.Baumgarten and M. Oppitz to salute the exhibition for the mind and the intellect. On the reverse side, in response to their red ‘Rabe’. Broodthaers printed ‘Fuchs’ (fox) in the same font as ‘Rabe’ but in black. Beneath this, in the elegant ecriture anglaise he often chose, Broodthaers asked the question, ‘Mais qui mangera le fromage?’ (But who will eat the cheese?). Although the bird is given as raven rather than La Fontaine's crow (corbeau) the references are clear. (…)". ".
THIS SET IS A VERY IMPORTANT PIECE FOR BOTH L. BAUMAGETEN-M. OPPITZ AND M. BROODTHAERS AND CONSTITUES A WORK IN ITSELF.
