Icons : Worship and Adoration
A magnificently illustrated book exploring the notion of icons
This volume, which accompanies an exhibition at Kunsthalle Bremen presents masterpieces which expresses aspects of spirituality and reverence in a variety of individual ways. The works extend from Russian icons via Caspar David Friedrich, Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian, Mark Rothko and Yves Klein to Andy Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Isa Genzken and Andreas Gursky.
Everyday icons from the world of brands and pop culture complete the range of images. The choice of works and the essays by selected authors contrast the interpretation of the traditional concept of the icon in art with the phenomenon of the creation of icons in our day-to-day environment.
