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.

Melanie Gerlis in conversation with Lisa Schiff and Nicholas Campbell

The Art Newspaper's Art Market Editor Melanie Gerlis and Lisa Schiff (founder of SVA) and Nicholas Campbell (founder of Narcissus Arts) show how the idea of a "collection" doesn't need to be daunting from a financial perspective. Advice on how to develop your own style, regardless of the value of works, and how this can become a collection in its own right. Ideas to be explored with one high end art adviser and one who works with younger, less experienced and less wealthy entrants to the art market.
