Ageing Process, the first monograph entirely dedicated to Lara Favaretto documents the artist’s career from her earliest works of the 1990s to her most recent installations, presented in the 2015 exhibition “Good Luck!” at MAXXI. Structured like a sort of manual, this volume accompanies the entries on her works with essays by critics and experts from various disciplines, who tackle themes complementary but not directly connected to the artist’s practice. As Favaretto, who edited the book, explains, “I decided not to follow any chronological or alphabetical order, but to instead suggest a unified discourse by making the reading experience flow as smoothly as possible, following an underground web of references between the texts that would elude any scansion dictated by the sequence of dates or letters.” Co-published with Sternberg Press and designed by Chad Kloepfer with Hyo Kwon.
