The catalogue « Gustav Metzger. Remember Nature » accompanies the retrospective devoted to the artist by MAMAC. As early as 1960, Metzger developed a reflection and artistic experiments on the downsides of consumer society and the ecological issues that remain highly relevant today. The book includes essays by Hélène Guenin, curator and director of MAMAC, and Bénédicte Ramade, art historian and specialist in art and ecology, as well as an unpublished interview with the artist by Mathieu Copeland, curator. The artist’s Manifestos are entirely reproduced and translated to shed additional light on his work.
