Besides being one of science fiction's top subjects, immortality is one of humanity's most debated issues. They Cannot Die by Catalan artist Oriol Vilanova is a possible portrait of how the twentieth century dealt with history and fame.It starts with a fiction written as a theatre-essay in which Dal , Lenin, and Disney enter into a lively argument about immortality in an empty exhibition room, which becomes the fourth voice.Through the discussion of these three icons of mass-culture, empty of any of the spatial or temporal restrictions that so often condition mortals, we are able to reflect on the relations between time and memory.At the core of this artist's book can be found a facsimile print of a short, nineteenth century introductory guide to human taxidermy, along with a visual archive of postcards of museums, which are presented as mausoleums.Humorous and metaphysical, this publication is part of the series of artists' projects edited by Christoph Keller.
