About Mundo de Papel 

Co-produced with the Fundación Botín on the occasion of a major solo exhibition at the Centro Botín in Santander, Mundo de Papel demonstrates the elaborate life-sized paper sculptures of internationally renowned artist Thomas Demand in the most ambitious book project of his work yet. Demand’s practice is all about paper engineering and the relationship between representation and ‘real’ events. This extraordinary book takes that dialogue to a new level with the sophisticated use of paper mechanics in the form of pop-ups representing the eight large pavilions Demand designed to be suspended in the Centro Botín, each of which replicates an urban landscape. The volume includes a separate book of installation views of the exhibition and a newly commissioned text by Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa.
