The conversation between German artist Thomas Demand
and Francesco Bonami, writer and curator, took place yesterday at the Fondazione Sozzani.
The Complete Papers,
the book recently published by Mack, is the opera omnia by Thomas Demand,
that sheds light on the artist’ personal history and on the trajectory of his creative practice.
As somewhere between sculpturing and photography,
Demand’s pictures open new perspectives on reality and how we experience it.

Thomas Demand and Francesco Bonami
will present the volume “The Complete Papers” published by MACK
on Monday January 14th 2019, 7.00 pm
at the Fondazione Sozzani.
“The Complete Papers” is an extensive catalogue
spanning nearly three decades of work by the German artist Thomas Demand.
Demand produces large-scale photographs that appear convincingly real
or strangely artificial in their minimalism. His images are in fact records of life-size paper installations,
which he often creates based on images culled from the media.
