Your Wounds

Concepts of the Passion in Traditional Christian Imagery and the Visual Art of Modernism

In this catalogue, which accompanies an exhibition of the same name, traditional Christian Passion piety is compared with a current and contemporary realisation of the theme of pain in art. Fascinating parallels and contexts emerge. With the depiction of the Passion of Jesus, the wound has a long tradition in Christian culture as a symbol of pain. This continues to prevail right up to the art of the 20th/21st century: After the experience of two world wars, the portrayal of trauma and suffering has become one of the most important themes in Western culture and is constantly reinterpreted and updated.
