Lara Favaretto,
Momentary Monument I (The Swamp)


Momentary Monument is Turin-based artist Lara Favaretto’s first artist’s book,
an extension of her project of the same title, which was shown as part of the exhibition “Making Worlds / Fare Mondi” in the 53rd Venice Biennial, curated
by Daniel Birnbaum. Including texts by Daniel Birnbaum and Chris Sharp, this publication expands the project shown at the Venice Biennial. It is divided into three parts: the first is a prologue, explaining how a swamp is created; the central part tells the stories of twenty disappeared individuals, characters such as Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who was lost in sea in 1975; and an epilogue describing the change in the surrounding landscape of the swamp, which doesn’t quite look
the same.

Lara Favaretto (born Treviso, Italy, 1973) lives and works in Turin. Her works have been featured in the Sydney, Sharjah and Venice Biennials, the Torino Triennial, and exhibited in Castello di Rivoli, MOCA Los Angeles, and Palais de Tokyo, Paris.

Home for Lost Ideas

Home for Lost Ideas is a publication allowing artists to revisit ideas they left behind.With contributions by artists such as John Baldessari, Sophie Calle, Liam Gillick, Jonathan Monk, Anri Sala, and Simon Starling, among others, this publication provides a place for the bad, the unfinished, and the impossible ideas that were never realized, a place where these projects could exist alongside each other. It is a collection of abandoned projects, an exhibition that can only be visited through the printed description of the unrealized works.

The Incest Museum, A Guide by Simon Fujiwara


The Museum of Incest is an ongoing project initiated by Simon Fujiwara in 2008. Subtitled “An erotic survey of civilization from ape to man and back again,”
this architectural project is composed of a fictive institution that explores the erotic origins of man, while proposing incest as part of man’s ancestry. The publication
is a guide to the museum, including a discussion of the fictive museum’s architecture, curatorial features, and the works presented in it. It is based
on a performance-lecture realized by Fujiwara as part of the project, titled
The Museum of Incest. A Guided Tour.

Simon Fujiwara (born London, 1982) is a Berlin and London-based artist, whose works have recently been shown at the 53rd Venice Biennial, Frame project
at Frieze Art Fair, and MAK Center for Contemporary Art and Architecture.
The Incest Museum has been shown at Umberto Di Marino Arte Contemporana, Naples, The Royal College of Art, London, OTIS, Los Angeles, and Limonchello, London.
