In this book, twelve international artists forge a reflection on the meaning, potential, and new experimental approaches in sculpture. Artists today tend to use new forms and materials to address a broader time span in an ongoing dialogue between past and future, yet they are also rediscovering materials like bronze, stone, and ceramic, which had become relegated to the purely academic sphere. Using the materials in a conceptual manner, they reflect on themes such as the monument, fragment, and temporality. Published on the occasion of an eponymous exhibition in Florence, with works by Francesco Arena, Nina Beier, Katinka Bock, Oliver Laric, Mark Manders, and more.
