FAQ is an art publication conceived and edited by Maurizio Cattelan and Myriam Ben Salah and commissioned by Le Dictateur. The first volume will be published to coincide with the tenth anniversary edition of Le Dictateur, and will then be published annually. FAQ, or Frequently Asked Questions, references an attempt to synthesise a recurrent flow, a tenor, an ideal visual representation of a given and very subjective "now." Born out of an acute image consumption disorder, FAQ reflects the mental assimilation of a relentless roving within physical and virtual art spaces: from galleries to Tumblr accounts, museums, or artists studios. It can be seen as a portable exhibition, a show on paper, a project of restitution, a hybrid object that you can leaf and scroll through. Far from being a rational enterprise, its lack of rules, hierarchy, order--or concept for that matter--make it expressly and brazenly as personal and biased as possible. FAQ reflects the obsessive mannerism of its authors.
The first issue includes works by Thomas Bayrle, Neil Beloufa, Caroll Dunham, Andra Ursuta, Jon Rafman, Kathy Grannan, Llyn Foulkes, Camille Henrot, Steven Shaerer, Korakrit Arunanondchai and Judith Bernstein, among many others.
