Polish-born, London-based Goshka Macuga (born 1967) adopts the roles of an artist, curator, collector, researcher and exhibition designer, working across a variety of media to explore how and why we remember both cultural and personal events. She particularly focuses on how we build our own classificatory systems for creating and remembering knowledge in times of rapidly advancing technology and information saturation. This book, published for the exhibition To the Son of Man Who Ate the Scroll, is organized as an atlas and retraces for the first time Macuga’s career from 1993 to the present day. The volume is edited by Mario Mainetti and includes original essays along with an anthology of texts by the artist published for former projects.
Published by New Museum. Edited by Massimiliano Gioni, Margot Norton. Text by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Grant Watson. Interview by Margot Norton.
London-based artist Goshka Macuga (born 1967) embraces diverse mediums--including sculpture, installation, architecture and design--to investigate how art has been used to rouse public debate and inspire social change. Macuga’s 2016 exhibition at the New Museum, Goshka Macuga: Time as Fabric, brings together a theatrical environment and a selection of tapestries, which draw on the rich historical tradition of textiles and are often vast in scale. Drawn to textiles for their rich historical tradition, Macuga exploits the representative functions of the medium, which can be used to embody political messages while also maintaining tapestry’s tactility and portability. This fully illustrated catalogue features an interview with the artist by Margot Norton and new reflections on Macuga’s work by artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov and curator Grant Watson.

Goshka Macuga: Exhibit, A accompanies the first museum survey exhibition of the work of Polish-born, London-based artist Goshka Macuga (born 1967). Macuga’s practice is located at the intersection of two strands that have done much to define the landscape of contemporary art in the last decade: on the one hand, an increasing interest in research--specifically of the archival, historical kind--and on the other, a growing concern with strategies of display and the blurring of boundaries between artistic and curatorial practice. Many of Macuga’s large-scale, research-intensive projects have been collaborative in character, and the resultant installations regularly incorporate the work of other artists, both living and dead. The exhibition at the MCA is the first to map her trajectory since the early 2000s, featuring a selection of works and emphasizing the medium of collage, both two- or three-dimensional. The third in MCA Chicago’s MCA Monographs series, Goshka Macuga: Exhibit, A is the most comprehensive documentation of the artist’s work to date and features newly commissioned essays by Dieter Roelstraete, MCA Manilow Senior Curator; Adam Szymczyk, Director of Kunsthalle Basel; and Grant Watson, Senior Curator and Research Associate at Iniva, London.
