This publication conceived by Maurizio Cattelan is both a book and an artwork. Like Duchamp’s “Boîte-en-valise,” it is a survey of Cattelan’s work. The artist designed the loose pages to fit in a carboard box; the hand-illustrated text and images emphasize the character of an artist’s book. Bice Curiger, chief editor of “Parkett” and curator at Kunsthaus Zurich, has contributed a well-informed essay.
