Regarding the documentary, it quotes,
“Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back, directed and written by Maura Axelrod (USA) – World Premiere, Documentary. An art world upstart, provocative and elusive artist Maurizio Cattelan made his career on playful and subversive works that send up the artistic establishment, until a retrospective at the Guggenheim in 2011 finally solidified his place in the contemporary art canon. Axelrod’s equally playful profile leaves no stone unturned in trying tofigure out: who is Maurizio Cattelan?”
