Buzz Spector's Marcel Broodthaers #2 (2010) at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts here. Spector "gives a Walker Art Center/Rizzoli catalog of Broodthaers's work the full treatment, covering every page in gesso and methodically ripping the pages.... Spector's engagement with Broodthaers goes at least as far back as his 1983 History of Europe, a work not included in this retrospective. Here Spector inverted Broodthaers's very first artistic effort: he sank copies of his last book of poetry into plaster, symbolically sinking his career," in a discussion of a Spector/Broodthaers retrospective here.
And Marcel Broodthaers (1997) here. More of Spector's work here; some discussion here. Also see Spector's A Passage (Granary Books 1994) here: "Clearly, A Passage is every book...". Spector's website is here.
