The Complete Papers is an extensive volume encompassing all of Thomas Demand’s work over the past 28 years, together with the primary texts written about his practice. The book includes previously unseen early works from 1990, together with reference reproductions on every one of his pieces.
To celebrate the publication of The Complete Papers, a catalogue raisonné spanning Thomas Demand's career to date, MACK will present a series of conversations with Demand.
For the first event, Demand will join Sir Nicholas Serota for a discussion followed by Q&A and book signing on Monday, November 19 at Foyles in London. On Thursday, November 22 the artist will join Peter Richter for a conversation and book signing at Buchhandlung Walther König in Berlin.
On Sunday, December 16, Los Angeles County Museum of Art Director Michael Govan and Demand will hold a talk at Art Catalogues at LACMA.
