Me, Family: Portrait of a Young Planet | Editor: Emanuela Mazzonis Di Pralafera

A Journey Through Many Worlds. In these times of great uncertainty, the themes that surface in the works of the thirty-six international artists gathered in Me, Family are more relevant than ever. Compiled by Francesco Bonami with a nod to Edward Steichen's historic exhibition The Family of Man, the volume paints a multifaceted portrait of humanity in the early decades of the twenty-first century.

The original installation of photographs and excerpts from writers opened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1955 and then went on a seven-year tour of one hundred and fifty museums all over the world. Matching the radicalism of Steichen's conception, Me, Family presents works by contemporary artists who harness a wide range of media and genres to explore the ways in which humans today engage with their manifold coexistent histories and the diverse challenges they confront.
