This publication is an attentive analysis of the work of Mimmo Paladino, one of the most innovative and established contemporary artists in the world.
This book covers his entire oeuvre from 1963 to 2015 and his role in renewing painting that, after including environmental interventions, shifted to photography and sculpture, architecture and cinema, opera and theater.
The publication is also full of memories and poetry and a comprehensive iconographic section enriched by previously unpublished material regarding different periods of his life as an artist. It is a thorough view of the many artistic languages Paladino adopted to express his vision on the relationship between memory and the present.
