M/M (PARIS) DE M À M

M to M of M/M (Paris) is a 528-page monograph presenting twenty years of works by M/M (Paris).

Published to mark their twentieth anniversary, this is the definitive monograph. It records hundreds of their mind-blowing projects, each represented in illustrations and photographs and arranged alphabetically from ‘M’ to ‘M’.
While print, drawing, photography and an unconventional approach to typography lie at the heart of M/M’s work, they have also produced films, objects or interiors.

Interviews with some of their closest collaborators — such as Björk, Nicolas Ghesquière, Pierre Huyghe, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Sarah Morris or Glenn O’Brien, as well as Amzalag and Augustyniak themselves, tell M/M’s story. These texts reveal their areas of interest, define their position both within graphic design and beyond and shed new light on the duo’s creative process. Internationally renowned art curator Hans Ulrich Obrist contributes a preface, while contemporary artist Philippe Parreno offers an essay about their joint projects.
These multiple conversations and recollections of shared experiences paint an overview of the evolution of the creative world since the early 90s.

Launch, October 24, Ensba, Paris, 6pm
Talk, October 27, Centre Pompidou, Paris, 3pm
