The first volume of the artist's monograph.

Artguide Editions and Garage have published an updated edition of Viktor Pivovarov's monograph.

The first volume features works and series selected by the artist, including Projects for a Lonely Man (1975), Sacralizers (1979), Rose Time (1988), and Diary of a Teenager (1986–1988), which are important both within Pivovarov’s practice and for the time when they were made.

The book includes reproductions of the artist's works up to 1996.
