Renaissance Reloaded. Deconstructing Piero della Francesca

Renaissance Reloaded. Deconstructing Piero della Francesca

»Renaissance Reloaded. We have here two that mean something similar but could hardly be more different! Renaissance signifies »rebirth of Antiquity«, while »reloaded« is a present-day term evoking the replenishing or recharging of something.«
(Michael Beck, Preface, in: Renaissance Reloaded (exhib. cat. Beck & Eggeling), Düsseldorf, 2013)

The richly illustrated catalog shows how modern and contemporary artists are reviving and continuing the Renaissance as a flash point, as a source of friction, and as a venue for intellectual battles in their work. The book is a tribute to this brilliant time of awakening with all its rediscoveries and new discoveries that led to a completely different societal identity and placed the arts on an equal footing with the sciences.
