Among Heroes

Pre-Images in Contemporary Art

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.

Artists:
Claudia Angelmaier, Hanna Brandes, Jan Dörre, Elmgreen & Dragset, Sabine Gross, Carina Linge, Jonathan Monk, Benjamin Moravec, Klaus Mosettig, Daniel Richter, Norbert Schwontkowski, Stefan Stößel, Veron Urdarianu, Gabriel Vormstein, Mark Wallinger, Martin Wöhrl
