Item description for Yasumasa Morimura: Requiem for the XX Century by Kai Itoi...

Yasumasa Morimura burst onto the international art scene in the eighties with his "Art History" series, computer-aided reconstructions of great Western paintings in which Morimura injected his own visage onto the faces of the works' original subjects. He explored some of the central themes of art, in particular the practice of painting, providing first-person reinterpretations of works by famous European artists such as Velazquez, Goya, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Monet. In this book, Maggia presents Morimura's interperatation of a collection of key figures from the twentieth-century—some of their most celebrated images that have become icons for entire generations. Subjects such as Mao, Che Guevara, the comic Hitler portrayed by Charlie Chaplin, the histrionic Einstein, Mishima or Oswald all invite us to reflect now on the significance of their experience and the weight of their heritage: politically, culturally and especially socially. Including an interview with the photographer, Requiem for the XX Century is a beautiful and thought-provoking book sure to attract the attention not just of art and photography afficionados, but of the general public as well.
Filippo Maggia lives and works in Milan and Turin for art journals both in Italy and abroad. He has curated more than 50 group and solo exhibitions and teaches Contemporary History of Photography and Design at the European Institute of Design in Turin. Since 2006 he has been Photography Editor at Skira publishing house. In 2007, he received a visiting fellowship from the Royal College of Art in London.
