THE A TO Z OF M/M (PARIS)



This Sunday, legendary design team M/M (Paris) and their new monograph M to M of M/M will be in conversation with Glenn O'Brien at MoMA PS1's Sunday Sessons. The book celebrates twenty years of creating in collaboration with some of the world's most influential artists, listing entries in alphabetical order (from M to M). Below, in alphabetical order, contributers sing their praises. Click through to see examples from their colorful career.

"I can’t imagine myself with a cover done by an artist other than them. Every time, it’s like they give me my finished record. It’s like a wonderful gift." Benjamin Biolay, singer

"One of the reasons we work so well together is that we don’t sit down with bullet points and put down a master plan It’s like the total opposite." Björk, musician

"They treat art as another channel, as part of the chain of signs. For me, that is what is most radical about their work." Nicolas Bourriaud, curator  

"M/M are among the most inventive and defining graphic designers of their generation. […] I am excited to see how they will continue to change the rules of the game in the future, again and again." Hans Ulrich Obrist, curator

"There is authorship and a strong political stance behind their work with signs, and that is what I’m interested in." Pierre Huyghe, artist

"It’s an artistic way to work, and I’ve always felt that there’s no reason not to do things to an artist’s standard." Glenn O’Brien, editor and writer

"What I really appreciate about Mathias and Michaël is that they flicker between very mainstream forms and very marginal forms in a way that questions these categories in the first place." Sarah Morris, artist

"We begin to play a game where art extends to design, where pictures fade into words, where an object cannot be differentiated from its exhibition." Philippe Parreno, artist

"They’ve completely revolutionized the art of graphics for theatre." Éric Vigner, director

"Together with M/M we have four brains. It’s much easier than doing something all by yourself." Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, photographers

"The overarching, most impressive thing with M/M, which became evident quite early on, is that they had a longterm vision in terms of developing a body of work." Paul Neale (Graphic Thought Facility), graphic designer

"There is a very special sense of contemporaneity in Mathias and Michaël’s work." Irène Silvagni, fashion consultant
