New publication on artist-provocateurs Eva and Franco Mattes

Charta (Milan) has just published a new book on Eva and Franco Mattes, the notorious prankster activists of The anthology features texts by authors such as Maurizio Cattelan, Bruce Sterling, and Still Water directors Joline Blais and Jon Ippolito.

The chapter by Blais and Ippolito expands a discussion from At the Edge of Art on Darko Maver, the most successful artist that never was. The Mattes’ skillful manipulation of artworld curators and journalists led to Maver’s posthumous inclusion in the 48th Venice Biennale, despite the fact that he never existed.
