Maurizio Cattelan

artist name

Maurizio Cattelan (1960) is an Italian artist, designer and publisher.

Maurizio Cattelan, invited for the group show Crap Shoot held between the 12th of April and the 19th of May 1996 in gallery De Appel in Amsterdam, breaks into Bloom Gallery. He puts the art works, fax machines and archives into plastic bags and cardboard boxes and transports everything to De Appel. He exposes the booty as his own work under the title Another Fucking Ready-Made. The police intervene and return everything into the Bloom gallery.
