Emblematic Strategies in Contemporary Art

Selected Papers from the Workshop Emblematic Strategies at the University of Kiel, July 29-31, 2014

Edited by: Hanna Pahl

From an art history perspective, this volume assembles case studies of the diverse processes and manifestations of emblematic strategies in contemporary art. Traditional emblematic strategies, such as the combination and juxtaposition of pictorial and textual elements, along with enigmatic aspects of codification, find their aesthetic transformation in contemporary art. The book's contributions highlight specific ways in which emblematic strategies are still present in artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries.
