A detailed review of the career of artist, playwright and editor Mauri (b. 1926) and his multifaceted involvement in postwar Italian avant-garde art, this substantial catalogue presents fine pictorial documentation of drawings, collages and muted geometric abstractions created by Mauri in the late 1950s and of some 35 installations, multimedia events and performance pieces he produced from the 1960s to 1994, the works ranging from symbolic statements on Fascism and the Holocaust to elaborate theatrical homages to Futurism and the Japanese Gutai group. Commentaries on the featured pieces, five essays, a critical anthology and numerous texts by Mauri illuminate the political, existential and philosophical issues underlying the progression of the artist's oeuvre.
