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.
