The Baroque era of the 17th century is associated with sensuality, extravagance and theatricality. This abundantly illustrated, full-color exhibition catalog from Kunsthaus Zürich juxtaposes the work of contemporary luminaries such as Cindy Sherman, Maurizio Cattelan and Juergen Teller with those of Baroque-era masters such as Pieter Aertsen, Valentin de Boulogne and Jacob Jordaens. This exhibition highlights works that approach life with sensualist intelligence, proclaim a vital exuberance and link to questions about what constitutes art itself through the connections with contemporary art. Texts by Bice Curiger, Elfriede Jelinek, Eileen Myles and Raoul Vaneigem and a discussion with Nike Bätzner, Bice Curiger, Victoria von Felmming, Michael Glasmeier and Tristan Weddigen.
