How can art remain relevant in the future? In substantial essays, this volume explores the issues surrounding the explosive nature of contemporary art and presents the stances of seven young, pioneering artists. Extensive examinations of the their works, along with statements by the artists themselves, round off the publication.In recent years, all of these artists, born between 1962 and 1976, have cut wide swaths in the thicket of the vast contemporary art scene by testing and developing the historicity of the traditional artistic categories of painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and video. Starting with art-historical genres, Duncan Campbell, Marcel van Eeden, Friederike Feldmann, Sabine Hornig, Julian Rosefeldt, Tatiana Trouvé, and Sascha Weidner create an open terrain on which to position their individual discoveries. The artists question reality in their works and present it as either constructed or fictitious. Exhibition schedule: Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, June 20–October 25, 2009
