Publisher's description: Polish-born, London-based Goshka Macuga (born 1967) adopts the roles of an artist, curator, collector, researcher and exhibition designer, working across a variety of media to explore how and why we remember both cultural and personal events. She particularly focuses on how we build our own classificatory systems for creating and remembering knowledge in times of rapidly advancing technology and information saturation. This book, published for the exhibition To the Son of Man Who Ate the Scroll, is organized as an atlas and retraces for the first time Macuga's career from 1993 to the present day. The volume is edited by Mario Mainetti and includes original essays along with an anthology of texts by the artist published for former projects.
