- "1968 the newest project by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari's Toiletpaper in collaboration with the Deste Foundation in Athens, is an unorthodox and kaleidoscopic walk through the Dakis Joannou collection of radical design. A pivotal year for architecture, design and society, 1968 is a collection of dreams and nightmares, an inspiring compendium of colorful, ironic materials, objects, and bodies. Toiletpaper's interpretation of the collection results in mind blowing photographs that trap us in a complex system of references, crossing layers, three dimensional and real time collages. 1968 is a rainbow, the memory of a storm and the positive projection of a newborn sun: the history plus the future, masterly shown in the drawings by one of the primary characters of the radical design movement, Alessandro Mendini, who adds a vital contribution to Toiletpaper's visuals."--P.  of cover.
