This is the sixth volume in Karma's 11-volume facsimile printing of Lee Lozano's Private Book (1930–99) project. One excerpt reads: “For my opening at the Whitney I would like to do a very special FANCY: want to give an invitation personally to the downtown people I know from being/living in this neighborhood for so long. In fact these are the only people I want at my opening. Just NEIGHBORHOOD people: from drugstores, food & laundry stores, stationary stores, etc. GET IT?”

Eleven of these private books survive, containing notes on her work, detailed interactions with artist friends and commentary on the alienations of gender politics, as well as philosophical queries into art’s role in society and humorous asides from daily life.
In the decade before her infamous “dropout piece”—culminating in a move to Dallas where she would remain until her death—Lozano returned to these notebooks, editing the entries, sometimes blacking out entire pages. Private Book 6 is the sixth in the series of 11 pocket-sized books, which are printed as facsimiles.
