Over the centuries, fashions in the art market have been manifest in diverse forms. The book brings together works from the 16th century until today and sheds light for the first time on the broad field that interconnects art and buying.

Emmanuel Bornstein

Emmanuel Bornstein’s main interest is (recent, German) history. The Holocaust in particular is a background motif for the ‘carnevalesque’ in Bornstein’s pictures, which appears both as over-the-top and controlled chaos. Bornstein employs the artistic media of the theatre and the circus in his grotesque, eerie, ‘world stage’. There are even auto-biographical elements, since Bornstein’s grandmother was a prisoner in Auschwitz. The investigation of the historical and human catastrophe of the 20th century by this young artist in the language of painting of today is a way of ensuring that it will not be forgotten.
