poster for Strøm & Getsy, 1967
Strøm & Getsy were invented by Willem de Ridder, Wim T. Schippers, Ulf Moritz, Swip Stolk and me. Strøm was a Swede, Getsy was British. They had earned a lot of money in the war and felt guilty about it. That’s why they made their capital available for anti-art projects. Everyone who didn’t get any money was of course very jealous. In reality it was all made up.
