is an artists' magazine created and produced by Maurizio
and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari
), born out of a passion or obsession they both
cultivate: images. Following in the wake of Cattelan's cult publication Permanent Food
magazine contains no text; each picture springs from an idea, often simple,
and through a complex orchestration of people it becomes the materialization
of the artists' mental outbursts. Since the first issue, in 2010, Toilet
has created a world that displays ambiguous
narratives and a troubling imagination. It combines the vernacular of
with twisted narrative tableaux and surrealistic
imagery. The result is a publication that is itself a work of art which,
through its accessible form as a magazine, and through its wide
distribution, challenges the limits of the contemporary art economy.
Edited by Maurizio Cattelan
and Pierpaolo Ferrari
