“A magazine as a platform for art? A different kind of exhibition?”(Toiletpaper Magazine Flyer)

 

Toiletpaper magazine consist of 21 double-paged photographs with no accompanying text to contextualize the images.  Conceived by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, Tolietpaper, in denying the reader context or explanation claims to, “like the internet, allow all image types and forms to exist side-by-side, equalized and ‘liberated’ and without any hierarchy.”

 

Why it is called Toiletpaper? Cattelan said

“Sooner or later all magazines end up in the toilet.”


About Toilet Paper Magazine

TOILETPAPER was founded in 2010 by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari with the art direction of Micol Talso as a picture-based magazine. In the last three years, photos published in the magazine have been applied to a variety of products and media, exploring the multiple possibilites for images to live beyond the pages. TOILETPAPER images have been reviewed by weekly and art magazines worldwide and appeared in special issues of magazines such as Vice and Hunger. TOILETPAPER was also exhibited on the High Line Billboard in Chelsea, NYC in May, 2012. In the same year images taken from the first six issues have been published in an anthology, together with selected narrative texts, that was reviewed in The New York Times’ Top 10 Photo Books. In June 2013, TOILETPAPER images have featured on Palais de Tokyo’s front windows and a special edition of Libération.
