    This book presents a collection of 200 black and white photographs and 100 lines of words gathered by the artist spanning the years from 1968 to 1989. The images were captured as entries in a photographic sketchbook and are represents in pairs that demonstrate visual congruities in form and shading. Opposite the photographs, textual phrases appear in Danish, Icelandic, English, and Swedish. The words have lodged themselves in the artist’s consciousness after appearing in newspapers, in conversations and on TV, rearranging themselves over time. Influenced by Alison Knowles’ work The Big Book, which was conceived as a locus for contemplating personal evolutions, this book maps out the circuitous development of memory over time. The translations from Danish into other languages are by Alison Knowles, Anna Sjödahl, and Rúrí

    Shinkichi Tajiri was born as Shinkichi George Tajiri on 7 December 1923 in Los Angeles, died in Holland 2009. He was a versatile artist. Although he expressed himself in many disciplines, he made his contribution to Cobra as an experimental sculptor. In addition, he was a painter and also made photographs, films and computer drawings. With Tajiri, versatile also means internationally oriented: American because of his birthplace, Japanese because he was born to Japanese parents from an old aristocratic Samurai family, French because his artistic career started in Paris, and Dutch because he moved to the Netherlands in 1956.

    In 2006, in order to realize the photographic work Grotto, Thomas Demand used a postcard as his starting point in recreating a grotto located on the island Maiorca. Employing 30 tons of grey cardboard, shaped with the help of a computer and laid out to form a stratification with 900,000 sections, the artist recreated the rock chamber, stalactites and stalagmites displayed on the postcard in order to photograph the work.

    For the opening of Fondazione Prada’s new venue, this grotto motif returns as Processo grottesco (Grotesque Process), for which Demand sets documentary materials including postcards, books, tour guides, catalogue illustrations, various advertisements and the massive reconstruction of the Spanish grotto alongside the photograph Grotto. In this manner, the artist allows visitors to explore the creative process that led to the realization of the photograph, opening a window onto the way the artwork has been transformed over the course of time through continuous investigation. The grotto theme is a recurring subject in the history of art and architecture, and implies a provocative, bizarre approach, typical of painting techniques of the 1500s known as ‘grottesca’ (grotesque).

    Lara Favaretto (b. 1973 Treviso, Italy) is renowned for her sculptural practice and large-scale installations that, as she describes it, ‘investigate the space between destruction and reconstruction, collapse and recovery.’ Over the past two decades, Favaretto has staged interventions that she calls ‘momentary monuments’, drawing attention to the futility and impermanence of monuments. These include a wall of 4,000 sacks of sand around the monument to Dante Alighieri in Trento, Italy; 400 tons of scrap metal that appears as archaeological find unearthed in a postapocalyptic era; or an obelisk-like stone sculpture with a small slit through which people could deposit donations to a charity that assists people facing deportation
