God Save Contemporary Art

Original title: Dios salve el arte contemporáneo
Category: Non-Fiction | History
Synopsis:

Discover the most surprising sins committed by artists of our time.

Unlike other animals, man possesses something unique that differentiates him: the possibility of making art. In its attempts to break away from the animal world, humanity has tried to dominate its passions, and these, inevitably, have turned into vices or sins according to morality, ethics, and religion. But how does the most recent art reflect and represent the passions? We will find out, analyzing it according to the seven deadly sins.

This story, full of stories and surprises, describes contemporary art in an easy-to-digest format meant for all publics. Because in the end, all of us love, hate, desire, admire, cry, and laugh. Each chapter will be constructed around one of these universal themes: wrath, avarice, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. Painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, video art, performance art, and urban art will be described in breezy and entertaining language to try and answer these naïve and yet deeply complicated questions: What is contemporary art? How is contemporary art made? What is conceptual art? What new artistic techniques are there?
