Journal of the identical lunch

Journal of the Identical Lunch


Nova Broadcast Press, San Francisco, Calif.



This journal documents Knowles’s signature Fluxus performance piece, The Identical Lunch: “a tunafish sandwich on wheat toast with lettuce and butter, no mayo and a large glass of buttermilk or a cup of soup […] eaten many days of each week at the same place and at about the same time." The journal includes reflections by participants Philip Corner, Dick Higgins, John Giorno, and Susan Hartung, as well as photographs, meal receipts, letters, and a diary account by Knowles of her “identical” dining experiences at the Riss Diner in 1968.
