Juan Muñoz: Everything I See Will Outlive Me

Manuel Segade, Gloria Moure (Eds.)

Museu Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, 2023


The double retrospective project ‘Everything I See Will Outlive me’ (Alcalá 31) and ‘At the Violet Hour’ (Museo Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo) commemorates what would have been the seventieth birthday of Juan Muñoz (b. 1952, Madrid; d. 2001, Ibiza), the Spanish artist who achieved the greatest international reputation in recent decades, with a meteoric career that spanned from his first exhibition in 1984 until his untimely death at the age of 48.From the mid-1980s, Juan Muñoz had sought to recover figuration in sculpture, but his unique theatrical approach and the emotional relationship of the audience with his work would gradually lead him to erase the distance between exhibition and reality. Suspended between two different centuries, Juan Muñoz’s oeuvre rises like an outpost of the speculative turn that characterizes art in the immediate present. This book – with essays by Gloria Moure and Manuel Segade, and which also features the artist’s own voice in a series of interviews – covers his entire career and includes previously unpublished material – an early interview with Richard Serra and pages taken from the notebooks he worked from – making it a valuable tool for future readings of his work.
