This book documents Gillick's project for the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2009. It contains an introduction by the curator, a text by Liam Gillick about his work as well as the text spoken by the kitchen cat present in the show: “She speaks from the present and fights against the echoes of building's interior. Its history is one of misrepresentation, misunderstanding and desires. Thus, the pavilion becomes a location for endless self-circulating histories that—in the end—represents our history as well.”
