Maurizio Cattelan, Permanent Food Nos. 1-15 (all published) 1996-2007
Complete set of 14 magazines edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Paola Manfrin and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, published by L'association des temps libérés, Paris, Les Presses du Reel, Dijon and Fondazione Pitti Discovery, Florence. The famous 'cannibale' periodical is an assembling magazine of found images from other magazines sent in by various contributors around the world. Permanent Food characterizes itself as 'a second generation magazine with a free copyright', working on the principle that the combination of two pictures from different sources alters the original meaning of the images.
Softcover, ill. covers, different dimensions, from 11.5 x 17 cm to 27.5 x 21 cm, various unnumbered pp. No.13 was never published. Added to No.15 is a printed tote bag, 32 x 26 cm, featuring a picture of Cattelan in full Miu Miu outfit (mint). No.6 has water staining on the lower right side (approx. 11 x 2 cm along spine). All other magazines show mild shelf wear, but are generally in very good condition. The early issues of PF are scarce, this is a rare complete set of the regular edition. (total 15)
