Item description for Alighiero E Boetti by Alighiero Boetti, Rolf Lauter & Andrea Marescalchi...
The conditions for a life of passion were there, but I had to destroy them in order to salvage them. --Alighiero Boetti, 1969 This book offers a sophisticated portrait, through previously unpublished works, of a man who first and foremost was a philosopher of depth, subtlety, and irony. Alighiero e Boetti invented and reinvented the world via the freest of artistic intervention, ever subverting its conventions. Order and Chaos = Alighiero e Boetti. Included are his graphite reproductions of magazine covers from 1986, his postal works, and his always astonishing maps--masterpieces of thought as much as of art, if not more.
