Beautifully produced to accompany Kabakov's Brussels installation, On the Roof follows the structure of the work with photographs from a family album: pictures of childhood, youth, a wedding, the first children and grandparents. Ultimately the reader sees that this is an autobiography of the lives of Kabakov and his wife. Turing the pages, we become participants in the private lives of many people, though Kabakov leaves no doubt that the "true" story is closed to us.
