Before the Beginning and After the End presented by Fondazione Prada
Before the Beginning and After the End, published by Fondazione Prada, is an atlas retracing for the first time Goshka Macuga’s career from 1993 to 2016. The volume includes essays by Rosi Braidotti, philosopher; Elena Filipovic, curator; Ariane Koek, CERN art consultant; Lawrence Krauss, physicist; Dieter Roelstraete, curator, and Michael Taussig, anthropologist, along with an anthology of texts related to past projects. Macuga’s artistic practice takes on several roles: artist, curator, collector, researcher and exhibition designer. She explores how we create our own classificatory systems for producing and remembering knowledge in times of advancing technology and information saturation.
