Among Heroes: Pre-Images in Contemporary Art

Among Heroes: Pre-Images in Contemporary Art
Library Shelf Location 17.AMON
Publication Date 2011

Quotations and variations, adaptations, samplings and references are central themes in contemporary art. Referencing other artists or other periods in art history is currently a very popular element of art practice.
“Among Heroes. Pre-Images in Contemporary Art” departs on a search for current examples of artistic referencing and illustrates art practices that do not deal with Romantic transfigurations of the past or past art. Instead, these focus on subjective re-interpretations of the myths of art history that display a new and consciously independent quality.
