Publisher Note

Brought to you by the aberrant, animated mind of Italian-born provocateur, mischief-maker, and macabre witness to our times Maurizio Cattelan, Toiletpaper: Issue 2 follows closely on the heels of the inaugural issue of Cattelan’s most recent print extravaganza. “The magazine springs from a passion/obsession that Maurizio and I have in common,” collaborator photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari said in an interview in Vogue Italia. “Each picture springs from an idea, even a simple one, and then becomes a complex orchestration of people who build tableaux vivants. This project is also a sort of mental outburst”. Published by the DESTE Foundation, this part magazine, part artist’s book blends commercial photography with warped narratives and surrealistic imagery, creating a series of powerful images that are as appropriate for the coffee table as they are for perusing in the WC.

TOILETPAPER was founded in 2010 by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari with the art direction of Micol Talso as a picture-based magazine.
