This monograph offers a first inventory of Philippe Parreno’s work since the end of the 1980s. It explores problematics such as memory, presence, real time, and narration, and covers his multiform production, from his early performance to cinema (“Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait,” with Douglas Gordon, 2006), and spectacle (“Il Tempo del Postino,” with Hans Ulrich Obrist, 2007). Edited by Christine Macel with the assistance of Karen Marta, this book offers the first complete list of works and chronology, fully illustrated and accompanied by notices. It also includes critical and fictional texts by Maria Lind, Charles-Arsène Henry, Enrique Juncosa, Beatrix Ruf, and Simon Critchley. Published (with the artist’s book Parade?) on the occasion of the Philippe Parreno exhibition at Centre Pompidou, Paris, June – September 2009.
