Realized in conjunction with the exhibition at Pirelli HangarBicocca, the monography delves into themes such as memory, the individual and collective sense of loss, and the cycle of life, offering new perspectives on Cattelan’s work. The volume includes critical essays by art historians and curators Francesco Bonami and Nancy Spector, together with a conversation between the artist and the curators of the show Roberta Tenconi and Vicente Todolí. The publication is enriched by the contributions of writers, philosophers, and theologians such as Arnon Grunberg, Andrea Pinotti and Timothy Verdon, whose insights deepen the reflections around the artist’s oeuvre. The catalogue also contains an extensive photographic documentation of the works on display and a selection of texts, republished and translated for the occasion, by the philosopher and writer Susan Sontag, the intellectual Giustina Renier Michiel, and the Kurdish-Syrian poet and writer Golan Haji.
