'The artist's reserved rights transfer and sale agreement' by Seth Siegelaub.
The agreement was conceptualized and available to the public in 1971.  
Independent curator, publisher ( Xeroxbook 1968, January 5-31, 1969 in new formats and which contained no subjects, sculptures or paintings ), researcher, collector, bibliographer and archivist he took a dynamic and major rol in the existence of  conceptual art in New York.
Under the title ' Seth Siegelaub: Beyond Conceptual Art' exhibition the great influence of  Siegelaub to modern art defined also through the document ' The artists reserved rights transfer and sale agreement' of which he was the originator and author.
Art dealer, author, political researcher, textile historicus and biographer  he was worked also on projects on time, space and causality in physics. 
Seth Siegelaub: '...Time is an element in looking at and evaluating art, just as it is in judging or looking at life. But there are certain questions regarding time that are special to perceiving art works. First the time it takes to see a work of art. For instance, a painting which is 40 feet long is perceived in a particular way, to say nothing of the activity within that forty-foot span. Second, that is implicit in a work of art; it took a long time to make; it was build up. Thirdly, from the audience's point of view, how the passage of time affects the view of art, making an static object a residue art object. An object has its making time and its looking time, and its changes as time passes. 
You can also break down the involvement of art into two very specific areas- space and time...' he underlined- accordingly explanations of  Stedelijk's Museum experts -as moderator his introduction of ' Time: A panel discussion (1969) that held at The New York Shakespeare Festival Theater. 
                                                                 Seth Siegelaub.
                                                 Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.



' Art as we know it..' he said also,'..at the moment deals primarily with space and its ramifications- line, composition- formal considerations in a painting or a sculpture. But the question of time is obviously much more elusive, perhaps because there are so few artists who have zeroed in on the issue. Certain artists are now beginning to think more about time and not take it for granted, the way that we do in our regular life. There are works of art which exist for a definite limited time and things not intended to remain for ever, just to name two of the possibilities. I want to ask each of the members of  the panel what their feelings are about time in regard to their work....'

                                                     Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
 In 1970 and after closing his gallery( 1966) in New York Siegelaub moved to Paris where he collected and published leftist literature on communication. He founded The International Mass Media Research( IMMRC) and gradually became ' a curator in large' and as an active independent curator he organized 21 art exhibitions, books, catalogues and projects in USA, Canada and Europa( 1968-1971).  
                                               MoMA Archives, New York.



S.Siegelaub according to MoMA which preserves a number of works from his collection he organized 21 projects in the years from 1968 until 1971.
Siegelaub who presented the work of artists such Douglas, Hueble, J. Kosuth and L.Weiner conducted in a positive manner of their significant participation in conceptual art.





According also to Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam '..his innovative approach to exhibiting art he played a vital role in the emergence of conceptual art in New York...'




Siegelaub began to collect hand-woven textiles and books on textiles in 1980. In Amsterdam where moved in 1989 founded The Center for Social Research on Old Textiles (CSROT) compiler of the first bibliography on textile history.
