abstract

This essay examines what Maurizio Cattelan achieved in the second part of his activity, starting from Maurizio Cattelan: All (the exhibition with which he had announced his retirement), up to the recent exhibitions Breath Ghosts Blind and YOU. Through a comparison with some artworks from his past, it will be highlighted the profound thematic and formal link that combines the last phase with the first one. In fact, the two moments are divided, not only by a temporal factor, but also by a different approach often interested to rethink what Cattelan has already done rather than to propose new solutions.
